OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Carl Pelini says in an radio interview that his firing at Florida Atlantic last year was unjustified and the result of a new athletic director who wanted to hire his own football coach.
Pelini told KFAB radio in Omaha, Neb., that there is nothing he did at Florida Atlantic that he is embarrassed about. KFAB is the flagship station of the network that broadcasts Nebraska football.
Pelini was defensive coordinator at Nebraska for his younger brother, Bo Pelini, from 2008-11. Florida Atlantic was his first head coaching job.
Carl Pelini resigned from FAU Oct. 30 amid allegations he used illegal drugs. He denied he used illegal drugs.
