LINCOLN — Bo Pelini said on his radio show Wednesday night that he has no plans to alter his demeanor on the sideline, a topic that the fifth-year head coach would rather be left alone.
During the hourlong call-in show, Pelini was asked about his fiery in-game outbursts, and if they had any influence on officials, who are calling 6.9 penalties per game on Nebraska (39th-most nationally).
Pelini said there were a couple of times in past seasons when he “lost (his) cool,” but he's made “adjustments” since.
“I've grown into the position,” Pelini said on “Sports Nightly” on the Husker Radio Network Wednesday. “One thing you can't do is you can't completely change who you are.”
Once the topic had been brought up Wednesday night, a couple of Husker fans called in to convey their support of Pelini's style. Pelini said the players appreciate his passion and emotion, too.
“My players and I are close,” he said. “I'd run through a wall for them, and they'd run through a wall for me.”
