Nebraska has hired Scott Booker to coach safeties and reassigned Bob Elliott as a defensive analyst for personal reasons that recently arose. Booker coached at Notre Dame from 2010 to 2016, most recently as tight ends coach and special teams coordinator. Elliott, also formerly at Notre Dame, joined coach Mike Riley's staff after last season. "It's an unusual time to make a coaching hire," Riley said in a statement. "But we are fortunate that Scott worked with our staff this past spring and brings great experience and energy to our program."
