Daughter: Solich Turns Down Army

By  | 

The daughter of fired Nebraska coach Frank Solich says her father has not accepted the head coaching job at Army.

The Omaha World-Herald, citing an anonymous source, reports that Solich turned down the job.

The reports follow those from the Middleton (NY) Times Herald-Record, which reports in its editions that Solich could be named Army's football coach.

Solich's daughter, Cindy Dalton, refutes that report.

Army Athletic Director Rick Greenspan told the Associated Press in an e-mail Friday morning that he would not comment on any coaching candidates. Greenspan is in Philadelphia for Saturday's Army-Navy game.

The World-Herald reported that Solich was offered the job Thursday night and that he was supposed to fly to West Point, New York, Friday.

Dalton says her father's spirits are a little better since being fired. She declined to comment on what, if any, other jobs her father was pursuing.
