Matt Rhule keeps Donovan Raiola on as Huskers offensive line coach

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Donovan Raiola will stay on the Huskers’ coaching staff.

Nebraska head coach Matt Rhule named Raiola, who was hired last year, as the team’s offensive line coach on Friday.

Raiola has experience in the NFL, helping coach the Chicago Bears offensive line for four seasons.

He also spent time in coaching positions at Hawaii and Notre Dame.

Raiola is the younger brother of Dominic Raiola, a former Husker who played for the Detroit Lions for 14 seasons.

Rhule did not retain any other coaches from last season, letting go of offensive coordinator Mark Whipple and interim defensive coordinator Bill Busch.

Instead, Rhule hired several coaches who have served under him at Temple, Baylor and the Carolina Panthers.

Those hirings include offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield and defensive coordinator Tony White, whose hiring was also announced on Friday.
