LINCOLN — University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Harvey Perlman and Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst said they were “in discussions” about addressing football coach Bo Pelini's expletive-filled comments about fans and the media made in a 2011 audio that was posted Monday on Deadspin.

Perlman said in a statement that he was disappointed, but he declined to comment to The World-Herald on whether he was considering disciplinary action or whether he had previously been aware of the two-year-old comments. Eichorst said in a statement that he had addressed the situation with Pelini and “expressed our deep concern.”
