LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -Bill Callahan was fired as Nebraska's coach Saturday, his four-year stay marked by the most embarrassing losses at a football program once among the mightiest in the nation.
Interim athletic director and Nebraska great Tom Osborne announced the dismissal one day after the Cornhuskers lost 65-51 at Colorado, squandering an 11-point halftime lead by allowing 34 consecutive points. The dismal result left the Huskers at 5-7 one season after they reached the Big 12 championship game.
This season was also marked by a 76-39 defeat at Kansas, the most points allowed by a Nebraska team.
The firing came one month and a day after Callahan said, ``I have done an excellent job in every area.'' Osborne apparently thought otherwise after only the second losing season at Nebraska since 1962, both coming on Callahan's watch.
