Nebraska’s search for a new OC might be wrapping up in the near future.

According to reports, the Huskers have zeroed in on ex-Pittsburgh OC Mark Whipple. Whipple reportedly resigned his post with the Panthers on Monday and will not be coaching in the bowl game.

Now, it looks like Nebraska and Whipple are close to an agreement. Per Parker Gabriel with the Lincoln Journal Star, Whipple interviewed for the job on Sunday and the two sides are getting closer to an agreement on Tuesday:

Whipple, according to sources, interviewed for the Nebraska offensive coordinator job on Sunday and indications on Tuesday are that the coaching veteran and NU are moving toward an agreement.

Whipple has been at Pittsburgh since 2019 and led a Panthers offense that had an ACC Championship season in 2021. He also helped produce a Heisman finalist season for QB Kenny Pickett.

Gabriel also reported that Frost and the Huskers are close to going with Donovan Raiola as the OL coach for Nebraska. Raiola has spent the last 3 seasons as an assistant offensive line coach for the Chicago Bears.
