Eric Crouch has been hired as an assistant football coach at Midland University. Midland announced today that the 2001 Heisman Trophy winner at Nebraska will coach running backs and special teams.
The Fremont school’s head football coach is Jeff Jamrog, a former Nebraska player who was the Huskers’ defensive line coach when Crouch was a player.
The 39-year old Crouch was quarterback for the Huskers from 1998-2001. The St. Louis Rams drafted him in the third round in 2002 as a receiver, but Crouch never played in an NFL regular-season game.
He lives in Omaha and has worked in sales of medical and recreation equipment.
