Nebraska to honor Frank Solich at spring game
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Former Nebraska head coach and player Frank Solich is finally returning to Memorial Stadium.
“We’re going to have an opportunity to honor Frank and his family,” Athletic Director Trev Alberts said Wednesday night on the Huskers Radio Network.
Solich will be honored April 22 at Nebraska’s Red-White spring game, something Alberts said Nebraska’s been working on for “a while.”
“I think it’s time, and I’m really looking forward to Husker nation honoring Frank and thanking him for everything he’s done as a player, as a coach and also honor him for what he did after he left here,” Alberts said.
It’s been 20 years since Solich was controversially fired after a 9-3 season in 2003.
Solich finished at Nebraska with a 58-19 record. He also led the Huskers to the 2001 National Championship game.
After Nebraska, Solich served as the head coach at Ohio for 16 seasons. There, he led the Bobcats to 11 bowl game appearances.
