A person with knowledge of the decision tells the Associated Press that former Nebraska coach Bo Pelini will be the next coach at Youngstown State, an FCS school in his hometown.

The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the school was still working on an official announcement.

The 47-year-old Pelini is a Youngstown, Ohio, native and graduate of Cardinal Mooney High School in the Northeast Ohio city.

He was fired last month after eight seasons at Nebraska. Pelini was 67-27 with the Cornhuskers but never won a conference championship.
