Lincoln East’s Malachi Coleman decommits from Nebraska

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Lincoln East’s Malachi Coleman is reopening his recruitment over a month after committing to play at Nebraska.

Coleman announced the decision via Twitter on Thursday.

“With the recent changes to the Nebraska coaching staff, I would like to take a step back and reevaluate Nebraska and other schools,” Coleman wrote in the post.

On Saturday, Nebraska announced the hiring of Matt Rhule as the football program’s next head coach.

The decision also comes less than 24 hours after former interim head coach Mickey Joseph was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault and strangulation.

Coleman had several offers from Power Five schools, including Georgia, Iowa and Florida State, prior to committing to Nebraska.
