Nebraska will be on the market for a new offensive coordinator for the 2020 season.
Friday, Bruce Feldman of The Athletic reported that Nebraska and offensive coordinator Troy Walters have “mutually agreed” to part ways after two seasons. Walters had been on Scott Frost’s staff for a total of four seasons, going back to the 2016 season at UCF.
Walters was the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach at both UCF and Nebraska under Frost.

Nebraska was expected to have one of the most high-powered offenses in the B1G this season, with plenty of talent returning to the field and Adrian Martinez entering his second season as the starting quarterback. Instead, the offense struggled.
This season, the Huskers averaged 28 points per game and finished the year with a 5-7 record. It was the third-straight year in which Nebraska failed to make a postseason appearance.
In his first two seasons with the program, Frost is 9-15, but has landed another quality recruiting class during the 2020 cycle. Nebraska’s success next fall could likely hinge on who Frost is able to bring to Lincoln to help operate the offense.
