Nebraska football legend Tom Osborne has been named one of the 50 greatest coaches of all time.

Sporting News says Osborne is No. 34 on its list. It says the list was compiled by a panel of 118 hall of famers, championship coaches and other experts.

The list appears as part of a feature in this week's Sporting News Magazine.

Osborne, now the athletic director in Lincoln, led the Cornhuskers to three national championships.

He finished No. 8 among college football coaches in the top 50. Ahead of him were No. 3 Bear Bryant, No. 10 Knute Rockne, No. 13 Joe Paterno, No. 23 Eddie Robinson, No. 24 Bobby Bowden, No. 27 Woody Hayes and No. 29 Bud Wilkinson.

Picked first among the top 50 was UCLA basketball legend John Wooden.
