Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne announced his retirement during a press conference Wednesday, reports ESPN.com.

Osborne's retirement is effective on Jan. 1, 2013.

Osborne, 75, was hired in October 2007 after previous athletic director Steve Pederson was fired.  Osborne spent 25 seasons as the Cornhuskers head football coach, coaching the team to national championships in 1994, 1995 and 1997.
