LINCOLN — The Nebraska athletic department Sunday night disputed a Texas newspaper report that a person representing NU contacted the agent of ex-Longhorn football coach Mack Brown to gauge Brown's interest in coaching the Huskers.
“Deny!” was the text from Nebraska Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst to The World-Herald. Eichorst offered no other comment and didn't respond to a follow-up text.
