The following is a news release from the University of Nebraska.
With the impending end of an outstanding career as coach and administrator at the University of Nebraska, several events have been planned as a tribute to Tom Osborne, who will retire from his current position as Athletic Director on Jan. 1, 2013. Osborne's five-year stint as a successful administrator follows a stellar career as Nebraska's head football coach when his teams won 255 games, 13 conference championships and three national titles in 25 years. Saturday's final home game against Minnesota, which kicks off at 2:42 p.m., will be Tom Osborne's 500th in his career.
Shawn Eichorst will begin his tenure as Nebraska's Athletic Director beginning on Jan. 1, 2013 and Osborne will continue with the athletic department as Athletic Director Emeritus until July 31, 2013.
Fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 2 p.m. on Saturday for Senior Introductions and MORE!
