September 26, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Nebraska athletics director Tom Osborne announced plans to retire Wednesday.

Osborne will step down on Jan. 1 and will stay around the program for about six months to help with the transition and support recruiting for multiple programs.

He has served in the position for the past five years after succeeding Steve Pederson on an interim basis and then taking the full-time job.

“It has been a pleasure and an honor to work in the Athletic Department for the past five years,” Osborne said. “I hope that there have been some good things that have been accomplished during that time. I appreciate Chancellor Perlman giving me this opportunity. I’ve had the privilege of working with some outstanding people in the athletic department and have confidence that the trajectory of the athletic department is very good.”

Osborne, 75, said his age drove the decision to leave his job.
