Lubick replaces Walters as Nebraska's offensive coordinator

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska has hired Matt Lubick to replace Troy Walters as offensive coordinator.

The addition of Lubick was announced Friday, hours after coach Scott Frost said Walters was leaving the program by mutual agreement.

Lubick worked as an Oregon assistant with Frost from 2013-16, and he was Washington's co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach in 2017-18. Lubick left coaching in January 2019 and worked in business in Colorado.

"I have always wanted to work with Matt again since our days at Oregon together," Frost said. "He is the only person I considered for this position. Matt has an innovative offensive mind, provides a veteran presence on our staff and brings a proven track record of success at the Power Five level."

Lubick, son of former Colorado State coach Sonny Lubick, began his college coaching career for his father in 1995.

"I am humbled to have the opportunity to be part of Nebraska Football," Lubick said. "Growing up I was in awe of Tom Osborne and Bob Devaney's unmatched run of success. It is a special situation for me to be reunited with an elite staff and Coach Frost who is the best in the business. The University of Nebraska is a world-class institution with the best fan base in college football."

Washington won 20 games and a Pac-12 championship in his two seasons with the Huskies. At Oregon, Lubick and Frost worked with an offense that ranked in the top five nationally in scoring and total offense from 2013 to 2015. Lubick took over as Oregon's offensive coordinator after Frost left to become head coach at Central Florida.

Walters had worked with Frost for four years, the last two at Nebraska and the previous two at Central Florida. Walters was a finalist for the 2017 Broyles Award, given annually to the nation's top assistant coach.

Though Walters was offensive coordinator, Frost has handled the play-calling. The Huskers were 5-7 last season, a one-win improvement over 2018, but the offensive production declined partly because of injuries to quarterback Adrian Martinez. The Huskers' receivers also underperformed.

Walters also had coaching stints at Indiana State, Texas A&M, North Carolina State and Colorado. The former Stanford receiver also played for four teams during an eight-year career in the NFL.
