Nebraska Football Makes Unexpected Coaching Change
Nebraska football made an unexpected change this week.
Shortly after the departure of former offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Troy Walters, the Huskers announced that he would be replaced with Matt Lubick.
Lubick and head coach Scott Frost previously worked together for three seasons at Oregon.
“Matt Lubick is a great addition to our coaching staff,” the head coach said.
“I have always wanted to work with Matt again since our days at Oregon together. He is the only person I considered for this position.
Frost went on to praise Lubick’s innovative offensive strategies and strong record of success.
“Matt has an innovative offensive mind, provides a veteran presence on our staff and brings a proven track record of success at the Power Five level,” he said.
“Matt and I developed a great relationship working together previously, and I look forward to adding his expertise to our offensive staff.”

Lubick, for his part, seemed very excited to join the Nebraska family.
“I am humbled to have the opportunity to be part of Nebraska Football,” he said.
“Growing up I was in awe of Tom Osborne and Bob Devaney’s unmatched run of success.
“It is a special situation for me to be reunited with an elite staff and Coach Frost who is the best in the business. The University of Nebraska is a world-class institution with the best fan base in college football.”
Prior to linking up with Frost at Oregon, Lubick also coached at San Jose State, Colorado State, Duke and Washington.
Nebraska ultimately finished 5-7 last season, near the bottom of the Big Ten. It remains to be seen whether the addition of Lubick will ultimately change the program’s fortunes in 2020.
