The move should not be a surprise to Husker fans. Pelini is now on the books for five more years and through the 2016 season, which is crucial in recruiting.
In four seasons at Nebraska, Pelini is 39-16 overall, making the Big 12 Conference championship game in 2009 and 2010. Pelini is 7-10 against AP ranked teams during his four years at the helm.
Last season Nebraska finished 9-4 overall in the Huskers first year in the Big Ten.
