Come join us Wednesday, December 21st at 7:30am for the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl FCA Breakfast.
Former Nebraska Cornhusker head coach, Tom Osborne, will be our keynote speaker! We will also have athletes and coaches speak from the MAC and the Mountain West Conference who will be playing in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.
Coach Osborne served as the head football coach at the University of Nebraska for 25 years, from 1973 to 1997. Over his 25 years, he was one of the most successful coaches in NCAA history, with a career record of 255-49-3, which also included 13 conference championships and three National Championships. In 1998, Nebraska renamed the playing surface at Memorial Stadium “Osborne Field.” He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a coach in 1999 and was also recognized by ESPN as “the coach of the decade” that same year. Finally, in 2000 he received the Jim Thorpe Lifetime Achievement Award.
After he left coaching, he ended up serving 3 terms in the US Congress from 2001 to 2007. Also in 2007, he returned to the University of Nebraska to become the Athletic Director until he retired in January of 2013.
