Nebraska Hall of Fame Coach and former Athletic Director Tom Osborne will be the headline speaker at the 2013 Nebraska Football Spring Coaches Clinic. The three-day Nebraska Coaches Clinic will take place in Lincoln from March 28-30. In addition to Osborne’s speech to the coaches in attendance, all members of the Nebraska coaching staff will address the group, along with six championship coaches from the high school and junior college ranks. Osborne retired as Nebraska’s Athletic Director in January after five years in that role and guided Nebraska to three national championships in his legendary head coaching career from 1973 to 1997.
“We are fortunate to once again be able to offer a great group of speakers for our coaches’ clinic, and I hope coaches from around the area take the opportunity to learn and share ideas,” Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini said. “As part of our clinic each year, we try to bring in one of the great coaches in our profession, and this year it was a natural to have Coach Osborne as our headline speaker. His coaching record speaks for itself, but his impact on the game of football, this University and the state of Nebraska goes well beyond what happened on the field. I know everyone will appreciate the opportunity to hear from Coach Osborne.”
Osborne posted a 255-49-3 record in his 25 seasons with Nebraska, leading the Huskers to national titles in 1994, 1995 and 1997, while also capturing 13 conference championships.
