Wager Resigns as NU Tight Ends Coach After DUI Citation

Bob Wager resigned Friday afternoon as Nebraska’s tight ends coach following a DUI citation earlier this week. 

A report in the Lincoln Journal Star says Wager was pulled over by Lincoln police at about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday in the area of Pinnacle Arena Drive and Q Street.  He was cited on suspicion of first offense DUI, careless driving, possessing an open alcohol container in the vehicle and refusing a preliminary breath test and a chemical test. 

NU said in a news release that Josh Martin, who was the Huskers special teams analyst, will be immediately elevated to tight ends coach.  He has seven years of coaching experience at SMU and Arizona State, where he worked with tight ends as part of his duties for both programs.
