OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A Husker lineman announced on Saturday that they are ineligible for the 2022 football season due to a failed drug test.
Nouredin Nouili issued this statement on Twitter:
"This spring I was informed by the NCAA that due to a failed drug test I am ineligible for the 2022 season. I'd like to apologize to my family, teammates, coaches and Husker fans for my error in judgment. It is an honor to be a part of this football program and represent this University and I do not take that responsibility lightly. Thanks to Coach Frost, our athletic and university administration for allowing me to continue to be part of the program in 2022. I look forward to returning to the field to represent Nebraska in 2023. Go Big Red!"
Head Coach Scott Frost responded with the following statement:
“We will fully support Nouredin Nouili as continues his academic and athletic career at the University of Nebraska. He is an outstanding young man, who made a mistake that will force him to miss the 2022 season and forfeit a year of eligibility. Noure will be a full participant in practice this fall, and we look forward to him resuming his playing career in 2023.”
