Same path as Huskers 2003; Callahan is probably available

The similarities here are amazing from the 2003 Nebraska story:

1. A semi-new AD (Pederson - close to Patterson) fires the head coach, in spite several 10 win seasons in a row. Unfortunately, there was no solid plan for who the new coach would be.

2. A committee was formed to find the best coach available, and a 'short list' was created. Unfortunately, none of the names on the short were eager to shift from their current positions.

3. An also-ran name was eventually selected, Bill Callahan, pulled in from a not so impressive NFL career.

4. Callahan and Pederson decided the 'culture' of Nebraska needed to change. Together, they stopped the walk-on program, locked out ex-players, took the all american pictures off the walls, and at the helm of Nebraska's first losing season in decades. Nebraska is still trying to recover from that dark period.

Perhaps Patterson can continue this string of similarities by hiring Callahan. I hear he is available following some stints at the Jets and Cowboys.
