Report: Two defensive analysts added to Nebraska staff
Nebraska has reportedly added two analysts to its defensive staff, according to Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald.
Per McKewon, Bill McGovern and Bobby Maffei have been added to Nebraska’s staff as defensive analysts. They will help defensive coordinator Erik Chinander for the upcoming season. No official announcement has been made by the school.
McGovern comes to Nebraska after spending four seasons with the New York Giants as an inside linebackers coach. Maffei spent last season as a special teams coordinator and defensive assistant at Richmond, an FCS program. He had spent the previous two seasons at Baylor.
The Huskers have struggled on the defensive side of the football the last two seasons under head coach Scott Frost. Adding more experience to the defensive staff, even in an analyst role, should be beneficial for a program looking to surge to the top of the B1G West in the coming years.
Nebraska ended last season 5-7, one win shy of reaching a bowl game. The Huskers are 9-15 under Frost.
