Apparently in response to an Omaha newspaper report that Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall turned down a $2 million offer to become Nebraska's basketball coach, athletic director Tom Osborne issued a statement saying that the school has not offered the job to anyone.

The Omaha World-Herald, citing two unnamed sources, reported that Marshall rejected the offer.

Nebraska spokesman Keith Mann said Osborne didn't tell him why he wanted to issue a statement. But no media outlet has reported that any other coach has been offered the job.

Osborne said, "A job offer would not be extended without athletic department officials first having an opportunity to meet in person with that candidate."

Marshall didn't immediately respond to an Associated Press email seeking comment.
