It didn’t take Scott Frost long to find his next offensive coordinator, after Troy Walters and Nebraska “mutually agreed” to part ways on Friday.
Later Friday evening, Nebraska announced the hiring of Matt Lubick, who will be the team’s offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach for the 2020 season. Frost and Lubick have worked together in the past, both serving on Oregon’s staff from the 2013 season through 2015. Frost was Oregon’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach and Lubick was the passing game coordinator wide receivers coach.
Lubick was most recently the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach for the Washington Huskies. He was a member of Chris Petersen’s staff from 2017-18.

“Matt Lubick is a great addition to our coaching staff,” Frost said, according to Huskers.com. “I have always wanted to work with Matt again since our days at Oregon together. He is the only person I considered for this position.
“Matt has an innovate offensive mind, provides a veteran presence on our staff and brings a proven track record of success at the Power Five level. Matt and I developed a great relationship working together previously, and I look forward to adding his expertise to our offensive staff.”
Most of Lubick’s coaching career has been spent on the West Coast. In addition to Oregon and Washington, Lubick has also had stops at Arizona State, Colorado State, Oregon State and San Jose State. He’s also left the West Coast for positions at Duke and Ole Miss, as well.
Nebraska is looking to end a three-year drought of bowl eligibility this season, with the program’s last postseason appearance coming in 2016. Lubick replaces Walters, who was a member of Frost’s staff for four years, dating back to their first year at UCF.
