Bob Diaco’s time in Nebraska was brief, strange and mostly unsuccessful.

But now, the former Husker defensive coordinator will get a new opportunity at another one of college football’s traditional powers.

According to Yahoo’s Pete Thamel, Diaco finalized a deal to become a defensive analyst at Oklahoma:

Diaco was a head coach at UConn before his one year as Nebraska’s defensive coordinator. His tenure in Lincoln coincided with a 4-win season in which the Husker defense ranked No. 114 against the run.

An analyst position isn’t an on-field role, but it’ll give Diaco a chance to take a year away from being a defensive coordinator or head coach for the first time since he was a position coach at Virginia 10 years ago.

Nebraska does have a home-and-home series scheduled with Oklahoma for 2021 and 2022.

But if Diaco helps out the Oklahoma defense in 2018, he likely won’t still be in Norman by the time those matchups roll around.
