The Huskers are reportedly losing one of their top defensive assistants.
Nebraska defensive backs coach Brian Stewart is reportedly leaving the Lincoln, Neb. program to become Rice’s defensive coordinator.
Rice is hiring Nebraska defensive backs coach Brian Stewart as defensive coordinator, sources tell colleague Sam Khan Jr. and me. Stewart has been defensive coordinator at Maryland, Houston and the Dallas Cowboys. He spent the past two seasons at Nebraska.
This is a tough loss for Nebraska’s defensive staff. Stewart will be missed.
