Nebraska football announces 3 new staff hires for key positions
Nebraska coach Scott Frost announced the hiring of three new staff members on Monday evening.
The Huskers are hiring Marcus Castro-Walker as director of player development. Frost has also hired Bill Busch and a defensive analyst and Keanon Lowe as an offensive analyst.
“The three men we have added to our staff will all impact our program in a positive way,” Frost said in a statement.
This will be Busch’s third stint with the Huskers. He was a graduate assistant for Nebraska from 1990-93. He was also an assistant for the Huskers from 2000-04.
“Bill Busch has a proven track record of coaching success at the highest level throughout his career, and he will be a great addition to our defensive staff,” Frost said. “Bill has an investment in this program and understands what it takes to win at Nebraska.”
Castro-Walker spent the last four years in the same role at Arizona State under Herm Edwards. He also has experience with Frost, working in a similar capacity on his UCF staff.
“Marcus Castro-Walker has a natural ability to connect with young student-athletes, help them in their transition to college and maximize their full experience as a college football player,” Frost said. “He will be a great supplement to many of the off-field programs our staff already has in place for our players.”
Lowe joins the Huskers’ program from UCLA. Lowe played receiver for Oregon from 2011-14 and was coached by Frost and Nebraska offensive coordinator Matt Lubick.
“Keanon Lowe is a rising star in the coaching profession and will complement our offensive staff very well,” Frost said. “Having coached Keanon at Oregon, I know the type of character, competitiveness, and football IQ he brings to our program.”
Lowe has also received praise recently for disarming a potential school shooter at a Portland high school in 2019.
