Nebraska coach Bo Pelini says he is not getting ready to interview for the University of Miami's head coaching job.

Pelini and Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne issued a joint statement Friday denying rumors that Pelini could be a candidate for the Miami job.

Said Pelini: ''The reports that I am preparing to interview at the University of Miami are false. I will not have any additional comment on this matter or any other rumors.''

Osborne says Pelini has done an excellent job and looks forward to having him help the Huskers transition into the Big Ten next year.
