Carl Pelini says AD's agenda led to firing at FAU

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Carl Pelini said Friday during a radio interview that his firing at Florida Atlantic last year was unjustified and the result of a new athletic director who wanted to hire his own football coach.

"There is nothing I did there that I'm embarrassed about. I'm proud of what we accomplished," Pelini said on KFAB, the Omaha-based flagship station of the network that broadcasts Nebraska football.

Pelini was defensive coordinator at Nebraska for his younger brother, Bo Pelini, from 2008-11. Florida Atlantic was his first head coaching job.
