Former UW-Whitewater football star Shawn Eichorst is leaving his job at
athletic director at Miami to take the same position at the University of Nebraska.
Eichorst gets a 5-year deal at Nebraska to replace the retiring Tom Osborne who plans to step down on January 1. Osborne will stay on for a few more months to help make it a smooth transition.
Eichorst was a defensive back and captain at Whitewater during his playing days.
