Chinander Fired, Busch Named Interim DC

Nebraska defensive coordinator Erik Chinander was fired yesterday. 

Interim head coach Mickey Joseph announced the move and said Bill Busch, who has been coaching special teams, will guide the defense for the rest of the season. 

The move came one day after the Huskers suffered a 49-14 loss to Oklahoma and eight days following a stunning 45-42 defeat against Georgia Southern that cost head coach Scott Frost his job. 

NU currently ranks 114th in scoring defense and 128th among 131 FBS teams in yards allowed per game. 

Nebraska has a bye this week before hosting Indiana next Saturday.  It was announced today that game will have a 6:30 p.m. kickoff and will be televised on BTN.
