College Football Hall of Fame coaches Tom Osborne (left) and Bob Devaney (right) set the standard for football excellence at Nebraska for nearly four decades. Devaney led NU to back-to-back national championships in 1970 and 1971 before becoming Nebraska's Athletic Director and choosing Osborne as his successor as head coach. Osborne led the Huskers to national titles in 1994, 1995 and 1997. After serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, Osborne became Nebraska's Athletic Director in 2006. Osborne retired on Jan. 1, 2013.
