LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -Bo Pelini has Tom Osborne's ``full support'' to coach second-ranked LSU in the BCS championship game.
Nebraska's interim athletic director said Tuesday that his new football coach will be on the sidelines as LSU takes on top-ranked Ohio State on Jan. 7 at New Orleans.
``Bo has been at LSU for three years, and its players and coaches have worked very hard for a chance to win the national championship,'' Osborne said. ``The two-week dead period in recruiting gives him a chance to take care of some unfinished business at LSU without really putting us in any kind of bind.''
Meanwhile, Pelini was recruiting and hiring coaches, including former longtime Nebraska assistant Ron Brown, who said Monday he was hired as tight ends coach.
Nebraska spokesman Keith Mann said Pelini wants to hire all nine assistants before making the list public.
