The Covington News - - SPORTS -

LIN­COLN, Neb.— 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 ended the sea­son at 5-7 fol­low­ing a 65-51 loss at Colorado. They squan­dered an 11-point half­time lead by al­low­ing 34 con­sec­u­tive points.

Os­borne met with Cal­la­han for five min­utes Satur­day, and Cal­la­han left the foot­ball com­plex with­out speak­ing to re­porters. Af­ter Fri­day’s game, he said he en­joyed his time at Ne­braska. “I have no re­grets,” he said.
