Huskers football community reacts to firing of AD Shawn Eichorst

Huskers football community reacts to firing of AD Shawn Eichorst

He continued by clarifying what is expected from Husker athletics. Green says winning "can and often does happen in concert with well-run, quality college programs".

For the second time in 10 years, Nebraska has ousted an athletic director during a football season that was failing to meet expectations.

Bounds and Chancellor Ronnie Green said Eichorst was a champion of student-athlete welfare and had done a good job keeping the athletic department fiscally sound. "Our fans and our student athletes deserve leadership to drive the highest levels of competitiveness on the field, as well as excellence across all facets of Husker athletics". It's still early in the season, and we need to find ways to win games like this. "So if the coach is the problem, the coach should be out first and if the next hire is bad then that's on the athletic director".

"I think you guys heard exactly what we heard", Miles said. "So obviously we've had a conversation with Coach (Mike) Riley ..." "And while we've made progress across many dimensions of Husker athletics, we expect more".

"Mike Riley is our football coach, we expect him to compete", Green said.

"In addition, we need to enter a political process with North Korea to make progress on the denuclearization of the peninsula". Trump is due to discuss the issue with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae Inn on Thursday.

With the man who hired him now fired, Mike Riley is surely feeling the pressure of his 1-2 start even more acutely. "We expect our players to compete in volleyball and any other sport". He was originally hired by the university in October 2012. That said, both Bounds and Green iterated that they would not rush such a critical decision.

"We wish Shawn and his family nothing but the best in the future", Whitehouse said. "So we're not limiting ourselves to anyone or any place, and at this point, we have not had any conversations with any individual". We have to look at a very competitive marketplace, we have to understand that we have the resources to absolutely be competitive.

"That's (on court improvement) what's got to be most important to us".

Asked by a reporter what level of competitiveness he desires for football, Green harkened to the national championship years, saying, "This is going to sound a little glib, and I don't mean it that way, but I'd love to be back in the mid-1990s, right?"
