Ex-football coach pleads not guilty in Iowa case

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A November trial has been scheduled for a former University of Nebraska at Omaha football coach charged with soliciting a prostitute in western Iowa.

The Daily Nonpareil newspaper (http://bit.ly/177eHFx) says 63-year-old Pat Behrns (burns) has pleaded not guilty. His trial is scheduled to begin Nov. 19.

Police in Council Bluffs, just across the Missouri River from Omaha, Neb., say Behrns was one of several people arrested July 23 during a sting operation at a Pottawattamie County hotel.

Behrns was the UNO head coach from 1994 until the century-old program was shut down in March 2011. Before that, Behrns was head coach for the University of North Dakota football team from 1980 to 1985.
