His resume for developing kids coming in that are more the 3 star kids as it’s rare Nebraska can real in the 4 & especially 5 star kids … he’s proven he can develop those kids into stars that are being drafted into the NFL … something that only Dr Tom could seem to do in the past !

As a lifelong cornhusker fan, I believe this is just the person to put things back together that were so messed up by the firing of Frankie Solich.

First of all, you can discount all of the "thumbs down" votes that wanted Mickey, they'd vote against any new hire. MJ was the interim coach, he wasn't the next in line, nor was he fired as HC. Rhule commanded the room today, when it took Bill Moos to do this last time out... That tells us a lot

Proven builder and evident respect for Nebraska. So his overall college coaching record is .522; his two year 1s combined it's .125 (3-21) taking over damaged programs; year 2s is .520 (13-12) and his 3 years 3-4 it's .756 (31-10). Looks like a builder to me. Keep MJ and Busch and it should go well.

Why the heck did Husker Nation think they deserved a better candidate than this? Let's be realistic and hope that Rhule is better than Frost and Riley, at minimum. If he's not, God help us.

When it comes to coaching hires, there's no such thing as a "sure thing" or a guarantee of success (see Scott Frost). I think TA did a great job of executing a diligent and thorough nationwide search that resulted in a very good hire. One that gives Nebraska a great chance to turn it around quickly!

Come on, the options were all maybe mediocre at best coaches. Would all be in over their heads in Big 10 just like Frost. KU coach and staff, KSU coach and staff, ISU coach and staff, NCST coach and staff, Army coach and staff, Bronco M and his VA staff? No thank you. Choice was a no brainer.

Just another attempt by wealthy alums to buy a championship. Mickey had heart of team. Smart of Rhule to get 8yr contract. In yr 3 when alums want him gone he'll join list of coaches on payout payroll.

Skeptical, never stayed long enough to measure if his programs were built to last. Bailed from each HC job after having his best year. Almost as if he doubted he could maintain the success.

Good point. If Rhule was so good, why did he leave Temple or BU? One could argue for the $, but he’s obviously not committed to a program for the long run. He played TA for a fool but unfortunately Rhule held all the cards bc TA was desperate.

Once again Neb hired the “man” rather than hiring someone who can fix the problems of poor defense and losing on both sides of the line of scrimmage. 64 days? He obviously was not the first choice.

I honestly thought Mickey could be the guy. He held it together and the defense made a huge jump from Chinanders debacle. He needed to get rid of WHipple, Give him a year with these players and see what would of happened. Couldn't been worse than Frost. Who was way over hyped!!!

Washout from the NFL that reported had to be persuaded a 2nd time to take the job. Previous record against ranked teams is zero wins. Runs an spread offense with more focus on the pass than the run, might not work in the B10. Baylor was not a rebuild. He did nothing with them the 1st 2 years.

I live in Jackson, MS and believe me, anyone who can do what he's done at an HBCU school like Jackson St can flat out coach and he talked the #1 overall recruit in the country into signing with them! Not to mention several other highly ranked recruits. Yes, he could get it done! JSU SUCKED B4 DEION!

Our largest challenge is someone who can not only bring in 4 and 5 star recruits, but to adapt them to the CULTURE at Nebraska and bring out the best of them within that culture. Deion Sanders is not a part of Nebraska Cornhusker culture and cannot bring that to players.

No matter the hype and potential, I want a qualified experienced HC who's exemplified those traits that we so desperately need. Deion could be that guy in a few years but I don't want to take the chance at this point that he's not.
