FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman put out a report on Tuesday that Nebraska’s Steve Cooper is joining another coaching staff. Cooper will be leaving the program and heading east.

Cooper is reportedly going to be the next OC of Maine football. Maine currently competes in the FCS and is in the Colonial Athletic Association with teams like William & Mary and Richmond.

Cooper was a senior offensive analyst with Nebraska this past season.

One of his greatest achievements while in Lincoln was helping the Nebraska offense earn a top 20 ranking in total offense last season. The Huskers averaged 447.6 total offensive yards per game in 2021, which was second in the B1G.

Before joining Nebraska, Cooper spent time with Portland State as OC. It looks like Cooper will be getting a chance to coaching another team’s offense once again with the Maine coaching staff. It’s worth noting that while Cooper was at Portland State in 2015, the Vikings upset Washington State and North Texas in the same season.
