Nebraska head football coach Bo Pelini has been known to be a bit fiery and abrasive. So it wasn’t a shock to hear what he told a recruit who was calling to tell the coach he was changing his mind.
Per The Big Lead, three star wide receiver Dominic Walker had a change of heart about Nebraska, and chose to instead commit to Auburn and join one of his highschool teammates.
Walker chose to call Pelini up and break the news.
“It was a very tough decision. They were [mad]. They were very mad. But I thought I had to call them like a real man should,” Walker said. “But yeah, they were mad. Coach Pelini said, ‘Best of luck, you’re going to need it.’ ”
Walkers high school receivers coach Rich Fisher sat in on the call and was shocked by Pelini’s response.
‘I can’t believe you,’
Harsh Bo, really harsh.
