Nebraska A.D. Shawn Eichorst announced the decision Sunday morning, two days after Pelini and Nebraska rallied to an exciting overtime win at Iowa in the regular-season finale.

The Huskers finished the 2014 season 9-3, the seventh straight year Pelini won at least nine games, and appear to be destined for a quality bowl.
