Nebraska's Bo Pelini was fired on Sunday after being the Cornhuskers head coach for 7 years. Per ESPN:

"We weren't good enough in the games that mattered," athletic director Shawn Eichorst said in his meeting with the media that lasted nearly 35 minutes. "I didn't see that changing at the end of the day."

Eichorst said he will not use a search firm to assist him in finding the next coach.

"This isn't a day of celebration for me," he said. "We've got a lot of good, young people in our program who are hurting."

Eichorst said he would not comment during the search on the people involved or the process. He declined to say if he would value Nebraska ties or head-coaching experience in a candidate.
Pelini, who previously was the defensive coordinator at LSU went 67-27 as Nebraska's head coach.
