Sources: Nebraska to name LSU defensive coordinator Pelini as coach
By Pat Forde
ESPN.com

Barring any last-minute snags, LSU defensive coordinator Bo Pelini will be introduced as the new head coach at Nebraska early next week, multiple sources confirmed Friday.

Pelini will coach the Tigers defense Saturday in the SEC championship game against Tennessee and, according to a source close to the situation, will be in Lincoln for an announcement Monday.

Pelini and Buffalo coach Turner Gill were believed to be Tom Osborne's final two choices to replace fired Bill Callahan. Both have Nebraska ties -- Gill as a former player under Osborne and coach under Frank Solich, and Pelini as a former defensice coordinator under Solich.

The move further complicates LSU's postseason. Head coach Les Miles is expected to meet with Michigan Wolverines early next week about its head-coaching vacancy. LSU is making an effort to keep Miles, but he's a Michigan alum who has often voiced his affection for the Wolverines program.

Pat Forde is a senior writer for ESPN.com. He can be reached at ESPN4D@aol.com.

Keep an eye on Missouri coach Gary Pinkel. If the power brokers at Michigan and LSU (in case Miles leaves) were watching television over the weekend, Pinkel is certainly one of the the hottest prospects out there.

Pinkel, 54, has turned around a perennial mediocre program at Mizzou and has it on the verge of a national championship. He also won at Toledo.

Pinkel may not be a Michigan man, but he's an Ohio man like former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler.

As a Mizzou fan I could not be more happy they got Bo. He is overrated as a D coordinator and will make for an average coach. He was given a D stocked with talent this year and underachieved. NU fans only suck this guy off because he took their D from being crap one year to being the 11th best D in the nation. That year MU hung 41 and Texas hung 31 on that Bo lead D.

If Bo had never been at NU in 2003 would be even be an option. Hell several teams turned him away last year when he was interested. Bring on Bo!

The press conference is at 4 p.m. Marvin Sanders is rumored to join Pelini's staff. The NU defense led the nation in interceptions in 2004 when Sanders coached the secondary. I'm looking forward to seeing the DBs get the receiver's face instead of giving them a cushion.
