LINCOLN – NET’s newest documentary “Tom Osborne: A Legacy Beyond The Game,” premieres at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 6, on NET and looks back at the milestones from the legendary Nebraskan’s life.
Shining a light on Tom Osborne’s impressive contributions to Nebraska, sportscaster Kevin Kugler sits down with Osborne for an intimate personal interview which covers his 25 record-breaking years as University of Nebraska-Lincoln head football coach, his political career and decades of service to young people. The television special will repeat at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8, on NET.
The one-on-one interview dives deep into the life and legacy of the icon, using his own honest words to tell his story. “I didn’t plan to ever be a coach.
