Rhule announces 3 hires to complete his 1st Nebraska staff
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — New Nebraska coach Matt Rhule has completed his staff with the additions of Bob Wager as tight ends coach, Rob Dvoracek as linebackers coach and Garret McGuire as wide receivers coach.
The hirings were announced Wednesday, just over six weeks after Rhule signed an eight-year, $74 million contract with the Cornhuskers.
Wager has been a Texas high school head football coach for more than 20 seasons, most recently at Arlington Martin. Among the NFL players he helped develop was Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, the No. 1 overall pick in 2017.
Dvoracek was on Rhule’s staff with the Carolina Panthers. He previously was as assistant at Lehigh and a defensive quality control coach for Rhule’s first two Baylor teams in 2017-18. Dvoracek played for Rhule at Temple in 2013.
McGuire was an offensive assistant on Rhule’s staff with the Panthers. He joined the team after his playing career at Baylor. McGuire’s father, Joey, is the head coach at Texas Tech.
