Downing Lands Head Coaching Job

Husker assistant football coach Scott Downing is Northern Colorado's new head coach. Downing spent three season at NU. He was the recruiting coordinator and work with the tight ends and kickers.

This is a great opportunity for me and my family. It’s always tough to make a decision to leave a program, and Nebraska is one of those very, very special places you always think about. But there comes a time when you have to have the faith to step out and take an opportunity when it presents itself and an opportunity like this doesn’t come along every day. I have great respect for everything Coach Callahan and Steve Pederson are doing at Nebraska and I want to thank them for their support through this process.”
