Nebraska's Riley fires special teams coordinator Bruce Read

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska coach Mike Riley has fired special teams coordinator Bruce Read.

The Cornhuskers have underperformed on special teams all season, and Read has been a target of fan complaints because of his $450,000 annual salary. Riley announced Read's dismissal Sunday, effective immediately.

Nebraska ranks 127th out of 128 FBS teams in net punting and has had three punts blocked. Nebraska is second-to-last in the Big Ten in opponent punt returns and 11th in opponent kick returns.
