Former Nebraska DC Bob Diaco finalizes deal to join Oklahoma as a defensive analyst, per report

Former Nebraska defensive coordinator Bob Diaco has finalized a deal to become a defensive analyst for Oklahoma, per reports.

It had been reported days ago that Diaco was joining the Sooners, but it is now rumored to be official.

Diaco spent one season with the Cornhuskers in which the team allowed 36.4 points and 436 yards per game, ranking last in the Big Ten in total defense.

The unit also allowed more than 500 yards in four games, something no Husker team has ever done before.

He came to Lincoln after serving as the UConn head coach for three seasons before he was fired. He also worked as DC at Notre Dame and spent time at Cincinnati, Virginia, Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Western Illinois.

When he was hired by Nebraska in early 2017, Diaco was the program’s highest paid assistant in history. Before joining Nebraska, Diaco was the head coach at UConn for three seasons before he was fired. Before that, he was the defensive coordinator at Notre Dame from 2010-13, where he helped the Fighting Irish reach the national championship game in 2012.

Diaco has also made stops at Cincinnati, Virginia, Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Western Illinois as an assistant coach.
