@FauxPelini has some advice for new Nebraska coach Mike Riley

Thursday December 4th, 2014

The ever-so popular Fake Bo Pelini account on Twitter didn't exactly take the news of the real Bo Pelini's firing by Nebraska well. 

And when the Cornhuskers hired long-time Oregon State coach Mike Riley on Thursday, @FauxPelini tried very hard to come to terms with the change. 

As it turns out @FauxPelini is such a great guy, so he decided to offer advice for Riley in his new endeavor. Fake Bo Pelini wrote an 18-tweet Twitter letter to Riley, telling him everything he needs to know about the new position in Lincoln. 

A Nebraska fan wrote a goodbye poem for Bo Pelini

Here are the letter's highlights: 

The man behind the account previously said he's not sure if he'll still continue it, and it sounds like he's still on the fence, so let's all hope this isn't the last we've heard of the great @FauxPelini.
