Matt Rhule is in the process of compiling his first staff at Nebraska since accepting the head coaching job last Saturday. According to reports, he’s closing in on a quarterback coach for his initial staff in Lincoln.

ESPN’s Pete Thamel reports early Wednesday morning that Rhule is expected to land Jake Peetz for the role of QB coach. Thamel is also reporting Peetz is expected to fulfill an additional role on special teams but that is undetermined at this point.

Peetz is currently an offensive assistant for the Los Angeles Rams and is a former Huskers who played for the program from 2003-05:

Peetz was mainly a reserve player and long-snapper during his time with the Huskers, but he has served in some notable stops early in his coaching career. Prior to coaching the Rams, Peetz served as the OC and QBs coach for LSU in 2021 and has other stops in the NFL.

Stay tuned to see what Rhule’s full staff looks like.
