Pelini apologizes for Friday's outbursts

Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini released the following statement on Saturday in repose to Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst's show of support earlier today.

Pelini apologized for his actions on Friday and said he looks forward to coaching the Huskers going forward.

"I want to thank our administration and Shawn Eichorst in particular, for his continued and full support that he has given me and our football program since his arrival on campus," Pelini said. "I am honored to represent this university and its great fans and I'm proud to lead this program into the future.

"I apologize for reacting emotionally yesterday and for showing frustration both with the game officials and the media. I fully understand and respect their difficult jobs, and I regret any and all actions or words which may have shed a negative light on our program and university. Accountability is a core belief throughout our program, and as the head coach, I must set and maintain a high standard.

"Our football staff is hitting recruiting full throttle and looking forward to the upcoming bowl game. We are committed to working with Shawn and our entire department staff to continue to build this program and bring championships back to Nebraska."
