Bill Callahan/ Overall Winning Percentage

Bill Callahan - Nebraska 2004-2007

Steve Pederson - Nebraska 2003-2007

___________________________________________


To be fair I'm sure both Steve Pederson and Bill Callahan thought they were doing what was needed to help keep Nebraska a top football program.  But for what ever reason it didn't work. Steve Pederson was NU's Athletic Director a year before he hired Bill Callahan as head coach.
