Head Coach Mike Riley has been put on notice. Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst has been fired by Nebraska Chancellor Ronnie Green. In a season where stability seemed like it was going to be hard to come by, this decision is not going to suddenly lead to any smooth sailing on the football field. Eichorst made an unusual (for him) decision to speak out after the loss to NIU last Saturday and publicly declare his frustration with the results of the game. Here is some of the reaction today.

Nebraska continues to live the delusion that it can regain its place among elite with one new hire … the next one https://t.co/bPaUeMyPa7

When Eichorst fired Pelini, he said, “In the final analysis, I had to evaluate where Iowa was.”
Since then, Nebraska is 16-14, Iowa is 23-8

Nebraska has fired athletic director Shawn Eichorst, who was the one who fired Bo Pelini. Pelini is still owed $3,712,261.
