Collier offered Butler AD job
Foxsports.com is reporting that Barry Collier has accepted the Butler AD possition. No word on any possible replacements. This would put G-Mac as the seventh tenured coach in the Big XII before coaching a conference game.
This Could Knock the Huskers Back a Bit
As we saw with WM, athletes tend to commit to a coaching staff more than to a school. Losing Collier probably just speeds up what would have happened next spring anyway

The kids would be better off going to prep school or JUCO to see how things pan out.
The bigger issue is if they bring in a mid-major coach, that guy has been recruiting a complete different talent level than what the Huskers need and this falls class could be a bust. The best hope would be a new coach hitting the JUCO's hard and focusing on a big class next spring.
