LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Will Bolt announced Tuesday that Nebraska baseball has parted ways with assistant coach Jeff Christy.

Christy, who coached pitchers and catchers, served as an assistant at Nebraska for four seasons under Bolt.

He also worked with Bolt on Texas A&M’s staff for two seasons.

“Jeff and I have a close relationship dating back to our College World Series run in 2005,” Bolt said in a press release. “He played a key role for the last four seasons and helped us earn a Big Ten Championship and NCAA Regional Final appearance in 2021. I wish Jeff and his family nothing but the best moving forward.”

Nebraska finished the 2023 season ranked third in the Big Ten with a 4.64 team ERA.  The Huskers’ pitching staff walked 191 batters, the lowest in the conference.

Nebraska missed out on a spot in the NCAA college baseball championship after a loss to Maryland in the Big Ten Tournament.

Bolt has yet to announce who will fill in for Christy.
