LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska athletic director Tom Osbourne is denying reports that former defensive coordinator Bo Pelini has been named the Cornhuskers new coach. ESPN reported on Friday that Pelini, now defensive coordinator at LSU, had been picked to succeed Bill Callahan.

Osborne says Nebraska will make an announcement when everything is in place and that it won't be too much longer.
