    Polk isn't going to take a GA position after being an assistant in the NFL. He'll get another NFL job somewhere or a full time college assistant job.

    I suspect that the guy Frost hires will be better qualified (more college coaching experience) than either Colman or Polk. We'll see. There's a ton of good young coaches out there some of whom never played P5 football.

    Carlos Polk has been an assistant special teams coach for the Chargers (09-12), Bucs (14-18), and Cowboys (19-present). With a coaching change in Dallas, I can easily see him being interested in returning to the Cornhuskers.

    Dawson has coached LBs at New Hampshire, Akron, and the NY Giants. He coached STs at BC.

    Hopefully Frost will target someone who is both a good coach and a good recruiter.

    Would be nice to get a quality coach plus a dynamic recruiter to help guys like Held and Fish.

    Ruud seemed to be able to build relationships with good players but another ace wouldn't hurt anything.

    This is probably the most realistic answer, but even so, why would Mac Brown want him? He just fired a guy who from what I can tell is better than what Dewitt has shown.

    DeWitt is pretty highly thought of and has a lot of recruiting connections in the South. My guess is Mack wrote this past year off, due to his health problems.

    When its come to change, two things are consistent, new coaches and losing.

    He is reuniting with the defensive coordinator that he coached with at army prior to joining Frost in Florida according to OWH.

    No doubt the constant calls for his head on call in shows and message boards and the somewhat public criticism from some former players probably made the decision pretty easy for DeWitt. I'm not sure too many people will be very upset that he's leaving. I do think his health issues were a problem for him performing his duties this past year. Hopefully he's good to go going forward. He's a good guy.

    Best of luck to him. I believe this is a win/win for both parties and it was no surprise to Nebraska. In fact I believe he was encouraged to try to find a place he would like.

    As far as next coach one would believe Dawson is a leading candidate but I also believe Frost will look beyond a single candidate.

    Not that I’m a big fan, but Dante Williams moved to OLB coach at Oregon.
    I agree we need an ace recruiter and he fits that mold. $$$ team... so we know how to lure him away from the ducks

    Yeah, I wouldn’t think he would. But hoping there’s an off chance he wants a shot to learn how to be a position coach. I’m not holding my breath but would be cool if it worked out that way. Definitely a pipe dream

    Not sure he'd fit? But he would own the west coast in recruiting, not much experience though.

    Didn’t Frost recently assure the latest recruits no coaching departures were forth coming?

    No Biff, he didn’t. He assured Francois his position coach wasn’t going anywhere. But thank you for your continued interest in Nebraska football.

    Read on one site that Doug Coleman or Carlos Polk would be good replacements. Always liked Carlos when he played for the Huskers

    I’m sure he left due to the comments that are said on this board. If that were the case we’d be looking to hire our 4th head coach and staff in 6 years lol.

    Wait but I thought Frost wasn't competent enough to know his staff wasn't good enough and he's in over his head like the rest of them......oh okay so RSS is overly emotional again.

    Wouldn't mind a couple more changes on the defensive side. That's been the bigger problem.
