After nearly 5 long seasons, Scott Frost is out at Nebraska. Now, the attention turns to which coach will be next to try and bring the Cornhuskers back to glory.

Every major media outlet will speculate who Huskers athletic director Trevs Albert should hire following the season’s conclusion, and CBS Sports Network is no exception. During a recent roundtable discussion, the panel deliberated which candidate would be the ideal fit in Lincoln moving forward.

Former UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel said that while he’s high on names such as Iowa State’s Matt Campbell or Air Force’s Troy Calhoun, his vote would be for Kansas State’s Chris Klieman.

“He was a big coach at North Dakota State, he did great things there. I think that guy can get that program turned around, and he’s from that region as well,” Neuheisel said.

Klieman spent 5 seasons as North Dakota State’s head coach before leaving for Manhattan in 2019. During his time in Fargo, the Bison won 4 FCS national titles and went 69-6 during that span. In 3 seasons with the Wildcats, Klieman hasn’t missed a beat, going 22-16 with 2 8-win seasons.

Another name mentioned was Marshall’s Charles Huff. Huff spent time under Nick Saban as Alabama’s running back coach before taking over the Thundering Herd job in 2021. Earlier this month, Marshall defeated No. 8 Notre Dame in South Bend.

The final name mentioned for the position was Coastal Carolina coach Jamey Chadwell. A proven winner in the Carolinas, Chadwell has led the Chanticleers to a 32-19 record since 2019. Coastal Carolina also posted back-to-back 11-win seasons behind the direction of star quarterback Grayson McCall.

The Huskers will be coached by former Nebraska quarterback Mickey Joseph for the remainder of the season.
