LINCOLN, NE -- Embattled Nebraska football Coach Bill Callahan sidestepped questions today about his future at the school. He says he's focused on preparing to play Kansas State on Saturday.
Callahan declined comment on whether he has been asked to resign
with the promise of a settlement. If he's fired at the end of the
season, Callahan's contract calls for Nebraska to pay him more than
3 million dollars.
The Cornhuskers surrendered the most points in the school's
118-year football history in last weekend's 76-39 loss to
then-eighth-ranked Kansas. They've lost five in a row for the first
time since 1957 and are 4-and-6 on the year.
The athletic director who hired Callahan has already been
dismissed, but interim AD Tom Osborne has said he won't make a
decision on Callahan until after the season.
