Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator, Bill OBrien, has been listed among the top three candidates for the Nebraska head coaching job. OBrien has previously served as head coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions and the Houston Texans, with neither stint being overly successful. During his time at State College, he was 15-9, while going 54-52 in the NFL.
Coach Saban hired OBrien after he was fired by the Texans in 2021 to function as Alabama quarterback coach and offensive coordinator. During Alabamas 2021 campaign OBrien lead an offense that competed for a national title, in addition to a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback.
For Nebraska, they are in a continuing search to get their guy given that they fired Bo Pelini in 2014. The Cornhuskers fired former head coach Scott Frost following a 1-2 start that included a brutal home loss to Georgia Southern.
Alongside OBrien, Iowa State HC Matt Campbell and Kansas HC Lance Leipold may also be being strongly considered for the positioning. Expect a choice from the Cornhuskers soon.
