Nebraska Closing In On Hiring SEC Offensive Coordinator

Nebraska is targeting South Carolina offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield to join Matt Rhule in Lincoln.

The Cornhuskers announced Matt Rhule as the program's new head coach this past weekend, and he's wasted no time trying to put together an impressive staff.

Rhule "is close to hiring" the OC for the Gamecocks, according to Pete Thamel. The two previously worked together at Temple, Baylor and in the NFL with the Carolina Panthers.

Will it be a big hire for Matt Rhule and Nebraska?

Marcus Satterfield has been involved in coaching for more than two decades, and he's coached at some incredibly impressive places as noted above.

Now, Rhule is attempting to get the band back together in Lincoln. It sounds like it's all but a done deal at this point.

In wins over Clemson and Tennessee this season, Satterfield's offense has put up an incredible 94 points. The counter argument might be the offense was atrocious against Georgia when the team scored just seven points. However, it's Georgia. You can't really hold that against him.

Down the stretch, South Carolina's offense has shown great improvement, Spencer Rattler has played at an improved level as the season has gone on and there's no question Satterfield knows how to put a solid offense together.

If he does ink a deal to coach with Matt Rhule at Nebraska, it will be a very solid decision from all involved. Come get some of that Big Ten money, Marcus Satterfield!
