With the imminent hiring of Carl Pelini as the new head coach of Florida Atlantic University, Nebraska will now begin the search for a new defensive coordinator.
This marks the second straight year that the Nebraska coaching staff will be shuffled. From 2008-2010—Bo Pelini's first three years at Nebraska—the coaching staff remained the same. Beginning in 2011, offensive coordinator Shawn Watson and wide receivers coach Ted Gilmore were let go and Tim Beck and Rich Fisher took their jobs, respectively.
Nebraska has a chance to create a splash with a new hire that could lure in big recruits and take the team to the next level.
