A week after firing athletic director Shawn Eichorst, Nebraska has hired a search committee to replace him.
According to the Omaha World-Herald, the Cornhuskers will pay $125,000 to Turnkey Sports & Entertainment to find a new athletic director.
Interim athletic director Dave Rimington has a 60-day agreement with the university in which he will be paid $50,000 for every month he holds the position.
Eichorst was fired amid a disappointing start to the season for the Cornhuskers football team, which is 2-2 with losses to Oregon and Northern Illinois. He had served as athletic director since replacing the retiring Tom Osborne in 2012.
According to the World-Herald, Turnkey has also coordinated searches for North Carolina, Ohio State, USC, Wake Forest, Arizona State, Miami, Georgetown, Texas and Oregon.
