Yeah. Agreed. It’s silly really. The reason Nebraska struggled to hire in the past is because of who was in charge and firing pretty successful coaches. It doesn’t go unnoticed in the coaching industry.I always hate this question from Nebraska fans. Almost as if we are Kansas in football (which to be fair our record the last several years isn't far off). Reasons for a coach to choose Nebraska:
Top notch facilities (especially when the new facility is completed)
Top 10 college coaching compensation
Less unreasonable expectations than the big dogs (Texas, OSU, USC, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Etc).
Typically the best or one of the best schools at recruiting in our division.
Big 10 job
Considered easier division than East
Football history and prestige
Lower cost of living than many places
Rabid fan base
You can win at Nebraska and any good young coach knows as much. Throw in 5-6m per, and you’ll have dudes lined up.
