Husker Offensive Lineman Nouredin Nouili ruled ineligible for 2022 Football Season

LINCOLN, Neb. (June 25, 2022 – KOLN) – Due to a failed drug test, Husker Offensive Lineman Nouredin Nouili announced on Saturday that he was ineligible for the 2022 season.

Nouili commented on Twitter, apologizing to his friends, family, teammates and fans about the announcement.

This spring I was informed by the NCAA that due to a failed drug test I am ineligible for the 2022 season. I would like to apologize to my family, teammates, coaches and Husker fans for my error in judgement.

It is an honor to be a part of this football program and represent this University and I do not take that responsibility lightly.

Thanks to Coach Frost, our athletic and university administration for allowing me to continue to be part of this program in 2022. I look forward to returning to the field to represent Nebraska in 2023. Go Big Red!

Nebraska Head Football Coach Scott Frost sent a statement on the incident:

“We will fully support Nouredin Nouili as continues his academic and athletic career at the University of Nebraska. He is an outstanding young man, who made a mistake that will force him to miss the 2022 season and forfeit a year of eligibility. Noure will be a full participant in practice this fall, and we look forward to him resuming his playing career in 2023.”
