You can’t call Nebraska a bunch of cheapskates.

Yesterday, the Cornhuskers hired Bob Diaco to be the team’s new defensive coordinator. Diaco was most recently the head coach at Connecticut, spending three seasons there.

Details have emerged about exactly how much Diaco is making, and Nebraska can’t say they aren’t trying.

The change to Diaco won’t only impact the school’s bank account – it’ll change how the team looks defensively.

Will the change lead to more victories for the Cornhuskers? Only time will tell, but next season won’t be a cakewalk.

In 2017, Nebraska will play Oregon and Penn State on the road while hosting top-end Big Ten teams such as Wisconsin, Iowa and Ohio State. Diaco’s first season may not be an easy one, but if he does succeed early, fans can have the chance to say the money was well spent.
