Pelini Lashes out at Chun on Nebraska Radio Station, Promises Lawsuit
"Ultimately, I think it boiled down to an athletic director who didn't hire me."
"We were making improvements. He came down there from Ohio State. He was their No. 1 fundraiser and made a lot of promises about money he was going to raise and changes we were going to make facilities-wise. He was not having a lot of success and we were growing as a football program. I think he wanted to hitch his reins to a new horse and get some credit for it and wanted to make a change."
"I trusted him. He looked at me over the desk and said, 'If you sign this paper, I will take care of you. I'll explain what went down. We want to be clear about why you resigned.' And then he wasn't. He went back on his word and it really disappointed me."
"Certainly I haven't been perfect and made a lot of mistakes. One thing I've never done is try to step on someone else to better myself or to better my situation. And I felt like that's what Pat Chun did."
"I think it is very important for me (to clear my name), so the options of litigation are still out there".
"On the way over here I spoke to my attorney again, and there will be legal action, it just don't think it will be against the University itself, it will be against some of the people involved."
Have to wonder if the other Pelini is going to want to pound us extra hard and run up the score as revenge for what we did to his brother.
My favorite line "I wrote a book, its fiction...about my life!" NICE!
