Want to coach Nebraska's offense?
By Adam Rittenberg
So far, Nebraska has announced only one departure from Bo Pelini's staff, as secondary coach Marvin Sanders resigned Thursday.
But it appears the staff changes aren't done yet.
A posting for an assistant football coach appeared Friday on the University of Nebraska's jobs Web site.
Description of work: "Responsible for offensive game preparation, on-field strategies and game tactics. Conduct student-athlete recruiting, monitor academic progress of current student athletes and provide instruction to team in the execution of offensive schemes and techniques."
Minimum qualifications: "Bachelor's plus three years successful collegiate coaching experience required; equivalency. Demonstrated ability to recruit national-level student athletes necessary. Must have knowledge and commitment to NCAA, Conference, and University regulations. Excellent interpersonal/organizational skills essential."
There has been a lot of buzz that two offensive assistants, coordinator Shawn Watson and receivers coach/recruiting coordinator Ted Gilmore, are on their way out. Watson, Gilmore and Sanders all were absent from a fan recruiting event Wednesday night in Omaha.
Watson's future with Nebraska has been a popular topic the past two months. He was a candidate for several head-coaching vacancies but didn't get them, and thus far, Nebraska hasn't announced any changes.
So if you're qualified and interested, send in your application by Feb. 17.
And stay tuned for more information.
