Miami AD Headed To Nebraska

Shawn Eichorst came to Coconut Grove with a cloud hanging over the U's program and now he’s headed out to Cornhusker land before the heavy rains of NCAA sanctions set in at Miami.

Eichorst has resigned as Miami's athletic director and is expected to replace Tom Osborne as Nebraska's athletic director sources told ESPN.

Last month, Osborne announced he would retire from Nebraska on Jan. 1.

Eichorst was hired at Miami on April 12, 2011. He spent the previous six seasons at Wisconsin, including the last three as deputy athletic director under Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez.
Prior to Wisconsin, Eichorst was a senior associate athletic director at South Carolina.

Eichorst, 45, graduated from Wisconsin-Whitewater in 1990 and earned a law degree from Marquette in 1995.

Speculation on the street is that the Suits In Indianapolis will announce additional sanctions against the Canes in November or December, and if they don’t, Miami will self-impose some additional penalties (no bowl game, for example).
