LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Former coach Tom Osborne is sticking around at Nebraska.
The 72-year-old Osborne, who also served in Congress, had indicated he would step down as athletic director when his current contract expires in summer 2010. But the university said Wednesday that Osborne has agreed to stay.
Osborne became athletic director in 2007 on an interim basis after Steve Pederson was fired. The interim tag was removed a few months later after Osborne hired football coach Bo Pelini.
Osborne was head coach for 25 years, winning national titles in 1994, '95 and '97. He was 255-49-3 before retiring after the 1997 season.
Osborne and Chancellor Harvey Perlman will review his position annually.
