Lincoln, NE (AP) - Nebraska's athletic director is denying a
report that coach Bo Pelini is a candidate for the University of
Miami's head coaching job.

Athletic director Tom Osborne told the Lincoln Journal Star that
he has not given Pelini permission to speak to Miami about the job,
and Pelini says he didn't seek permission to interview for another
job. Pelini wouldn't otherwise comment publicly on the report.

Pelini's Cornhuskers (10-3) are ranked No. 17 heading into the
Dec. 30 Holiday Bowl game against Washington (6-6).

Miami fired Randy Shannon last month after a 7-5 season. The
Miami Herald, citing a University of Miami source it did not
identify, reported Thursday that school officials planned to talk
to the third-year Nebraska coach.

Pelini and Nebraska football officials didn't immediately return
messages left Thursday. A secretary for Osborne said he had told
her to tell callers: "There's nothing to comment on."
