I think Nebraska is still paying him so he is actually double dippingBig pay cut for him, but at least he is coaching again. He is a solid coach that just couldn't bring back the 90's to Nebraska.

Smart on his part.Yup...
>>Under the terms of Pelini's contract, Nebraska will owe him as much as $7.65 million over the remaining term in an agreement that runs through Feb. 28, 2019. The deal paid Pelini a base salary of just under $3.1 million for the current contract year, and that amount was scheduled to increase by $100,000 next year.
Pelini is owed $150,000 for each of the 51 full months remaining on the deal ($1.8 million a year), according to his contract, although "within a reasonably brief period following termination," he is required to use his best efforts to find "substantially comparable employment" that generates income to offset Nebraska's obligation to him. Pelini's contract with another employer must be "without structuring or timing (of) compensation to avoid mitigation."<<
Probably making more by taking Youngstown job than an NFL or P5Coordinator job.
Pellini strikes me as guy that just wants to coach and not deal with the outside pressures and distractions that come with a job like Nebraska. Since Nebraska is continuing to make him wealthy, he can work at what he loves coaching football, without the distractions of boosters and donors as well as the media scrutinity. I bet he will love it till the checks from Nebraska stop coming.
I thought Tressel was at Akron, but yeah, that would be incredible.Incredible when you think about... Tressel and Pellini @ same FCS school.

Ignoring all of Tressel's purported ethical cheallenges, that is incredible. Some Penguins' fans must be quite happy to have both him and Pellini. A one time 1-AA powerhouse may return to its past success.Tressel is the President @ YSU now...
Frank Solich is a solid coach. Even he wasn't so old, I would have taken him here. Unlike P, he has adapted to the times and his offenses score points and are exciting. Guy won ten games at Ohio, and is 16 games over 16 for his career at that school.Pellini is nothing more than Frank Solich with a worse demeanor. He will be mediocre with the Penguins and fade from view--until he erupts on the sideline in another YouTube classic.
they were reporting that last week... probably made official yesterdayESPN reporting that he accepted the HC position at Youngstown State.

Bo Pelini, at YSU presser: "I have a president that's understands football, something that I don't know I've ever had."
Solich isn't a bad guy but I wouldn't want him at UConn. Pellinni is a bad guy IMO and I believe he will be a flop at Youngstown St. Tressel and Pellinni are some combo. Let's see---Herbst and Diaco vs Tressel and Pellini. No contest --we win.
There is a little zinger at the Nebraska president -
I like Pelini - he's fiery and a winner, in a drill instructor kind of way.
