OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Former Huskers head coach Frank Solich was honored with the Tom Osborne Legacy Award on Wednesday night in Omaha. Solich succeeded Osborne at Nebraska and led the Big Red from 1998-2003.
He has led Ohio University for the last 14 seasons.
"A great two days," Solich said about his return to Nebraska this week. "I had a chance to be around players I've coached, players I've played with. Amazing time to share stories and good conversation going with guys that I haven't seen for quite some time."
"He's a well-respected guy in the profession," said Osborne. "I'm just glad he's able to come back and meet with so many former players and some of the fans and I think that he certainly deserves something like this."
