Former UW-Whitewater athletic director and Wisconsin associate AD Shawn Eichorst was introduced as Nebraska's next athletic director Tuesday.

Eichorst has been at the University of Miami for almost two years.

Nebraska could be a perfect fit for Eichorst, who grew up in Lone Rock, Wisconsin..

" As a young boy growing up in the farmlands of southwestern Wisconsin, my days were filled with family,  church, school, work," said Eichorst. "Yeah, I worked in the fields, I baled hay, fed the pigs, milked the cows, and detassled corn, believe it or not."

Eichorst will take over for Osborne at January 1.
