Bill Busch, interim DC for Nebraska, to receive raise in new role, per report
Bill Busch has been named Nebraska’s interim defensive coordinator after Erik Chinander was fired after the loss to Oklahoma. Busch is reportedly now getting a raise per Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald.
Busch is going to be earning an additional $15,700 per month on top of his $400K as the team’s special teams coordinator.
Chinander’s defense let up 514 yards per game through four games this season. With that number, Nebraska is allowing the most yards per game in the B1G as well. It shouldn’t be too hard to Busch to do better than Chinander did, but who knows?
Busch’s first test as interim DC will come against Indiana on Saturday. The Hoosiers have been red hot out of the gate with wins over Illinois, Idaho, and Western Kentucky.
Indiana won the last time these teams met 38-31 in Lincoln back in 2019. The Hoosiers are 3-1 through four games this season.
Busch’s debut kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET on BTN.
