With the retirement of longtime head coach Howard Schnellenberger, the FAU Owls were on the hunt for a new head coach. According to a report by Brett McMurphy of CBS, FAU has extended an offer to Nebraska defensive coordinator Carl Pelini who is expected to accept the position.
Nebraska defensive coordinator Carl Pelini has been offered the Florida Atlantic job and is expected to accept the position, sources told CBSSports.com.
The 46-year old Pelini is the brother of Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini. Carl Pelini will replace Howard Schnellenberger, who announced his retirement before the season.
The head coaching position at FAU would be Carl Pelini's first head coaching gig outside of being a high school football head coach. FAU has a record of just 1-10 this season and will play their final game this weekend against Lousiana-Monroe.
