(Neb.)- Ruud Hired As Nebraska Inside Linebackers Coach
(Huskers.com)- Nebraska has named Husker great Barrett Ruud as a full-time assistant coach in charge of the inside linebackers. Ruud was hired as part of Head Coach Scott Frost’s staff in early December, but was elevated to an assistant coach role on Tuesday, the first day that FBS football programs were allowed to add a 10th full-time assistant coach.
The all-time leading tackler in Nebraska history, Ruud served on Frost’s staff at UCF the past two seasons as a defensive quality control administrator.
Ruud boasts extensive knowledge of the linebacker position from his playing days. He totaled a school-record 432 tackles in his Nebraska career, 90 more than any other Husker. He was a freshman All-American, a three-time All-Big 12 selection and a 2004 third-team All-American.
