LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -Nebraska interim athletic director Tom Osborne wants to quash speculation that he's already made a final decision on coach Bill Callahan.
Osborne said Thursday he has not.
He plans to meet with Callahan and the rest of the coaching staff Nov. 24, the day after Nebraska plays at Colorado.
``We want to make sure we've had adequate input from everybody,'' he said. ``We've got seven or eight days before the Colorado game. That's why it would be foolish to make a decision before all the data is in.''
Callahan signed a new five-year contract in September, but that was before the firing of athletic director Steve Pederson and the arrival of Osborne. Callahan's job status has come into question as Nebraska has struggled after reaching the Big 12 championship game last year.
The Huskers, whose defense is one of the worst in the country, ended a five-game losing streak last week with a 73-31 victory over Kansas State. Nebraska (5-6) must beat Colorado to become eligible for a bowl.
When Osborne replaced Pederson last month, he said he would wait until after the season to evaluate Callahan.
``There never was any confusion between me and the coaching staff on when the end of the season was,'' Osborne said. ``I don't say one thing and do another.''
