Nebraska's Sadler not worrying about job security

ERIC OLSON AP Sports Writer Published:

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska coach Doc Sadler says he's not worried about his job security after this season. He says his concern is to get his basketball team to play better now.

The Cornhuskers are 11-11 overall and 3-8 in the Big Ten after losing at home to Minnesota on Sunday.

Sadler said Monday on the Big Ten coaches conference call that he knows he needs to start winning. He said he still believes in his players and a turnaround could be in store to end the season.

He said it has been challenging to face all new opponents in the first year in the Big Ten.

Sadler last April signed a contract extension through 2015-16. He would be paid more than $3.3 million if fired after this season.
