Ex-UConn coach Diaco new Nebraska defensive coordinator

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Bob Diaco, fired as UConn's head coach last month, was hired as the new defensive coordinator at Nebraska on Saturday.

Coach Mike Riley hired Diaco to take over a defense that struggled as the Cornhuskers lost four of their last six games. Diaco replaces Mark Banker, who was fired Wednesday.

"When we began looking for a new defensive coordinator, Bob Diaco quickly rose to the top of the list," Riley said. "He has coordinated a top-level defense, has proven himself as a great teacher and recruiter, and we are excited to have him join our football program.
