Report: Bo Pelini signed a five-year contract extension this week

Somebody needs to inform Bo Pelini, still new to this whole Twitter game, that nothing is official until it is shared on Twitter. The Nebraska head coach reportedly signed a five-year contract extension earlier this week, when nobody had heard much of a peep about it.

According to Gregg Doyel of CBSSports.com, Pelini signed the extension that will keep Pelini in charge in Lincoln through the 2018 season, so we can officially remove Pelini from any coaching hot seats heading in to the 2014 season. Nebraska has yet to officially comment on the contract status, likely because the extension still has to be approved by the university in an official capacity. This is not uncommon, and it should not be much longer before an official statement can be made about the news.

Nebraska is coming off their first season without a top 25 finish under Pelini since his firsts season in Lincoln in 2008. No Nebraska team under Pelini has finished with fewer than nine wins. Since being hired as head coach at Nebraska, the Huskers are 59-24 and have played in two Big 12 championship games and one Big Ten championship game.

    Faux Pelini is surely happy about the news

    They seem sort of stuck–they’d like somebody else but can’t be sure they could get anybody better.

    Solid coach. Horrible people skills.

    Wisconsin thanks you.

    Tough call. Can Nebraska hire a better coach? That’s debatable at this point. I don’t have much faith in Bo, but it could be worse.

    Great coach.. Unlike Wisconsin we play for national titles. Not trips to rose bowl where u guys lose regularly

    Good. Can’t wait to see what we can do. It took Dr Tom a few years to get there and a few more to win 3 out of 4 (and almost 4 out of 5).

    Guess the Nubs are happy with the “Frank Martin” of college football. Remember folks, the “N” on the helmet stands for Nowledge!

    Actually it stands for No Douches Allowed

    Actually the ‘N’ stands for Nebraska.

    With the education you received, we can all believe that you thought “N” stood for knowledge.

    For many years, “N” was your superior and it was ingrained into your head that “N” was actually knowledge and was ass kicking your team.

    Any other stupid “N” jokes you’d like to share?

    Bo knows… (4) loss seasons.

    Hmmm….not sure what to say. I think he is a decent coach but he has also had plenty of time to put together a solid team and it hasn’t happened.

    Nebraska still has a football team? Shoot, I thought they quit playing in the mid 90′s.
