LINCOLN, Neb., Jan. 6 (UPI) -- It looks like Nebraska could take a new coach from inside the organization, it was reported Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Dallas Morning News reported Tuesday Cowboy's defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer will stay put, despite a $1.5 million offer from Nebraska.
"Mike Zimmer is going to be staying with the Dallas Cowboys," Dallas coach Bill Parcells said. "I think Mike did a good job for us. I am just happy that he is staying here with us. I think he wants to be a pro coach."
Zimmer was apprehensive about taking the job because of the location and viability of the program, the Morning News reported.
Nebraska Athletic Director Steve Pederson released a statement Tuesday confirming Zimmer's withdrawl and said officials would be meeting with Gill, Pelini and "other potential candidates."
