Nebraska football’s Bo Pelini confirms former Jayhawk Tim Beck will be offensive coordinator

February 17, 2011


Nebraska coach Bo Pelini has confirmed the reorganization of his coaching staff, making Tim Beck his offensive coordinator and announcing four new assistants.

Pelini told the Associated Press on Wednesday that he has hired Indiana assistant Corey Raymond to coach the secondary, Ohio assistant Ross Els to coach linebackers and Massachusetts prep coach Rich Fisher to coach wide receivers. Pelini later announced that staff intern John Garrison has been promoted to assistant and will work with Barney Cotton on the offensive line and coach tight ends.

Pelini, who spoke by phone while on a golf vacation in Palm Springs, Calif., declined to say whether former offensive coordinator Shawn Watson and former receivers coach Ted Gilmore resigned or were fired. Pelini announced former secondary coach Marvin Sanders’ resignation for personal reasons in a statement two weeks ago.

Beck, an original member of Pelini’s staff, has never called plays at the college level. He spent three years at Kansas before coming to Nebraska. He was the Jayhawks’ receivers coach and pass-game coordinator in 2007, when the Todd Reesing-led offense averaged 43 points and 480 yards a game.
