OMAHA, Neb. (AP) --

The Mavericks' football and wrestling programs were dropped in
March 2011 as part of the athletic department's move from NCAA
Division II to Division I. UNO officials said the cuts were needed
to keep the athletic department financially viable.

Mike Degan is an attorney with Husch Blackwell, and he is
representing a student-athlete who was affected by the decision to
drop football.

Degan said in a news release that UNO needs to be "more
forthcoming in providing information relevant to its decision to
terminate the football program."
