Callahan To Be Next Husker Head Coach

ESPN.com's John Clayton tells Channel 8 Eyewitness News that former Oakland Raiders Head Coach Bill Callahan will be Nebraska's next Head Coach.

Callahan's agent Gary O'hagan told Sports Director Jon Wofford Thursday night that the two sides were still negotiating as of 10:00 p.m..

Channel 8 Eyewitness News also confirmed that Callahan's wife Valerie was at Piux X High School Thursday.

The Huskers have been without a head coach since Athletic Director Steve Pederson fired Frank Solich on November 29th.

Callahan led the Raiders to the Super Bowl two years ago but was fired after Oakland went 4-and-12 this season.
