Nebraska Hires Mark Whipple as Offensive Coordinator, Quarterbacks Coach

Published

on

One day after resigning from Pitt, Mark Whipple has officially been named the new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Nebraska.

Reports surfaced on Tuesday that Whipple formally interviewed in Arizona on Sunday with Nebraska head coach Scott Frost.

The 64-year old Whipple joined Pitt’s staff in 2019, following a four-year stint as head coach at UMass. Prior to that, Whipple was offensive coordinator at Miami and spent time in the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns.

Whipple received national recognition this season for being in charge of one of the most dynamic offenses in college football along with mentoring and helping to develop Heisman Trophy candidate Kenny Pickett. Pitt led the ACC in scoring (43 points per game), second in yards per game (502.9 yds) and total passing yards (4,553).

Following a disappointing 3-7 season, Frost has made a number of coaching changes including firing four offensive assistants, which included offensive coordinator Matt Lubick.

The good life must now be interpreted as losing. 😂

I saw some tweets from folks thinking this is a home run hire. They will be very disappointed when they realize it’s much more like a bunt.

The talent and selflessness won for Pitt this year. Whipple is a nice Quarterbacks Coach and a mediocre Offensive Coordinator. It Pitt wanted Whipple they would have made an offer.

I wonder if the split between him and Narduzzi was philosophical or personal.

I wouldn’t buy a house yet. Scott Frost has the hottest seat in Div. 1

I used to like Whipple. But that was before he went to Arizona (on Pitt’s dime) to interview for another job. Whatever the circumstances this is not a good look. And of course the QB the he supposedly recruited to Pitt was actually a recruit for his new school.
Good riddance! and don’t let the door hit you in the rear.

I think Narduzzi botched this whole situation.

Not a very long list. The only other OC since Canada was Shawn Watson.
