"It was a very difficult decision for him," Tony Green said. "He's very tight with his brother (Andrew Green) which made this even more difficult. It's also been difficult on me and his mother. We really wanted him to stay, but in the end he had to make his own decision. It's not mine to make. He's got to be happy. It just wasn't meant to be for him and he's got to make his own decision."
Tony Green said Aaron is looking at Oklahoma, Baylor, Texas Tech, TCU and Houston as potential transfer options.
Tony Green said it was very difficult on Pelini to see Green leave, because he showed so much promise this spring.
"Coach (Pelini) didn't want him to leave and I didn't want him to leave," Tony Green said. "Towards the end though (Pelini) was pretty understanding of his decision."
Maybe the hardest part though was for Aaron Green to break the news to his older brother Andrew Green
, who is currently a junior cornerback for the Huskers.
