Bo Pelini, the former Nebraska head coach who was fired on November 30, will accept the same position at Youngstown State once he is formerly offered the job, according to Football Scoop. An announcement is expected Thursday.

Nebraska fired Pelini despite his 67-27 record with the school. He took over in 2008 and won at least nine games in each season, but a lack of conference titles or major bowl games proved to be his downfall. The Cornhuskers were 39-17 in conference play under Pelini.
