What’s next for the Huskers?


Huskers offensive coordinator Greg Schiano said Saturday that he expects to leave the program in 2018, a year after the team signed QB Brian Orakpo.

Schiano, who was the offensive coordinator for five seasons, was promoted to interim coach last month.

Schiappa said he expects the team to start a search for a new offensive coordinator, which is expected to be announced on Tuesday.

Schiapich said Saturday he was considering the possibility of coaching at a college or university next year.

The Huskers have won just two of their last 12 games, including two consecutive losses to No. 3 Oregon.

Schiemeich had been under contract through the 2019 season, but his contract was terminated after the Ducks won the Pac-12 title in 2016.

Schioppa is under contract until 2021.

The 49-year-old Schiano was hired as the Husker offensive coordinator in 2010 and was hired the following year as the quarterbacks coach.

The former Nebraska quarterback threw for 3,871 yards and 18 touchdowns as the team won five Pac-10 titles in his four seasons as head coach.

Schmitt, who led the Huskies to three consecutive bowl games, led Nebraska to a bowl win in 2010, including a victory over Oregon.

He also coached the Husky football team to five straight bowl appearances.

Schipf has been Nebraska’s head coach since 2010 and his first as interim coach.

He guided the Huskeyes to two bowl games in his three seasons at Nebraska, including the 2013 Fiesta Bowl victory over Oklahoma.

Schiff said he was not involved in hiring Schiano or hiring Schiappas replacement, but he will continue to monitor the situation.

Schipps replacement will likely be a member of Schiano’s staff for a few more months, he said.

Schicke’s dismissal came after the program’s second straight season of bowl losses, which included a 17-10 loss to Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl.

Nebraska (3-7, 1-6) lost its third straight game, falling to Oklahoma 30-20 on Saturday night.

The Horned Frogs are 2-5 on the season, including three straight losses.

Nebraska finished the 2016 season 4-7 in Big Ten play, and a loss to Northwestern in the season opener would have been the first since 2005.

Nebraska has won just one of its last eight games, losing a season-opening 38-31 at Penn State in the Nittany Lions’ bowl loss to Washington in 2017.

Schiefft and Schiano were both named interim coaches in 2016 after the season-ending bowl loss.

Schielp has a 522-241 record with a Big Ten-best 10 winning seasons, including six straight winning seasons from 2015 to 2016.

He was a member on Schiano and Schieffer’s staffs for six years, including one as head coaches in 2013.

He led Nebraska (4-7) to three straight bowl games and two bowl victories, including four wins over No. 1 Michigan State in 2014.

Schiolp was hired by Nebraska as a graduate assistant in 2013, and he was a part-time assistant coach in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

His first season as Nebraska’s coach was a disaster, losing five games, finishing 9-7 and losing its final three games of the year.

Schiampo was hired in 2012 after serving as the Nebraska defensive coordinator.

He went 19-18 as Nebraska finished 12-2 and earned bowl eligibility in his first season.

He served as the defensive coordinator in his final two seasons as the program went 13-2 in his two years at the helm.

Schilling had been a graduate assistants assistant at Nebraska from 2007 to 2011.

He helped coach the Huskedogs to a pair of bowl victories in 2011 and 2012 and a pair in 2013 as the Cornhuskers earned bowl status for the first time since 2008.

The team finished with a winning record and ranked No. 10 nationally.

He spent three seasons as Nebraska athletic director before he was fired after the 2015 season.

Schiller is the fifth coach to leave Nebraska this offseason, joining Schiano (2008), Schmitt (2010) and Schiff (2014).
