Frank Solich to be Honored at NU’s Spring Football Game

There will be a special guest honored at Nebraska’s spring football game next month.  NU Athletic Director Trev Alberts made the announcement last night in his monthly visit to “Sports Nightly.”

“Frank Solich and his family are going to join us and we’re going to have an opportunity to honor Frank,” Alberts said.  “We’ll also have another special announcement at the spring game concerning Frank.  I’d just really like to encourage Husker fans to help us make it really special.”

Solich was fired almost 20 years ago.  Alberts said the state has been fragmented by coaching changes over the years.  “We’re a small population state,” Alberts said and added: “The only chance we have is unity.” 

The Huskers spring game is set for April 22nd at 1 p.m.
