Accurate Description of Pelini


Accurate Description of Pelini

When Carl Pelini arrived at Nebraska in 2008, he inherited a defense that ranked 112th — out of 119 ranked teams — nationally the previous season in yards allowed. Under Pelini’s direction, the Cornhuskers ranked 55th in 2008, seventh in 2009 and 11th in 2010 in total defense, and are currently 36th in that department nationally this season.

Widely considered to be an outstanding recruiter, Pelini has never been a head coach at anything above the high school level. His last prep job was in his native Ohio in 2002, before becoming a graduate assistant for Nebraska’s defense in 2003. He was Minnesota State’s defensive coordinator in 2004, an assistant at Ohio from 2005-07 and then moved back to Nebraska in 2008.
