BOCA RATON, FL (Palm Beach Post) - Florida Atlantic has scheduled a news conference for Monday at which time it is expected that Nebraska defensive coordinator Carl Pelini will become the second coach in school history, according to sources.
Athletic Director Craig Angelos said in a text message early Friday that FAU is in "the last stages of the search process and we will have more clarity on the subject in the next few days."
Angelos, though, does not want the hiring of Pelini to overshadow Howard Schnellenberger's final game, which will be played Saturday at FAU Stadium.
"We are working on seeing that Howard's last game is a complete success," Angelos added. "I don't want anything to detract from Howard's last game."
