"The Pepin-coached Husker women won the 1982, 1983 and 1984 indoor national championships. Pepin’s teams combined for 23 top-five NCAA finishes, and 59 Huskers were crowned national champions in their events. Pepin coached NU women who won 18 indoor and 24 outdoor individual national championships. His male athletes garnered nine indoor and eight outdoor individual national titles.

Only the fourth coach to guide the NU men’s program since World War I
, Pepin maintained the program’s stability after replacing the late Frank Sevigne in 1984. Pepin’s men’s program matched the women’s success, capturing 20 indoor and 13 outdoor conference titles during his 42-year tenure. Pepin guided Nebraska to an incredible 44 Big Eight indoor/outdoor titles, more than any other coach in the history of the conference. After joining the Big 12 Conference in 1997, Nebraska won a league-high 22 indoor/outdoor titles."

"His tenure at Nebraska has been nothing short of impressive which in total spanned 42 years in Lincoln. Pepin’s accomplishments over that time were beyond impressive. Below is just a brief rundown of what has happened under his tutelage. (via Huskers.com)
