Bo Pelini fired as Nebraska's football coach

Nebraska's football coach Bo Pelini was dismissed on Sunday after a seven-year stint marked by an inability to restore the program to national prominence and too many embarrassing defeats. 

Pelini extended his strek of winning at least nine times, he also win with a 37-34 overtime at Lowa on Friday but he never won the conference championship and his team had lost four games which he completed.    

"Earlier this morning I informed Coach Bo Pelini of our decision to move forward in a new direction," "Coach Pelini served our University admirably for seven years and led our football program's transition to the Big Ten Conference," athletic director Shawn Eichorst said in a statement. 

Pelini was 66-27 and led the Cornhuskers to three league championship games in the Big 12 and Big Ten.
Pelini was under contract through February 2019 but the University made an own settlement and dismissed the contract about 7.5 million. 

Pelini wrote in text to the Associated Press about the comment on Sunday, "I'm good. Thanks for asking!"   
Eichorst told that he is searching new coach for the vacancy but he gave not any name for the replacement.
