Facebook post costs newly hired Nebraska stadium PA announcer his job

LINCOLN, Neb. -- A months-old Facebook post has cost the Nebraska football stadium announcer his job one day after his hiring was announced.  

Jon Schuetz said Tuesday that a university official told him he was let go because of a Facebook post critical of the firing of football coach Bo Pelini last November. Schuetz said he has deleted the post and declined to comment on what it said.

"They were correct to do it," Schuetz said of his firing. "I own it. It should be a lesson to everybody: be very careful what you say on social media."   story
