Diaco spent one season with the Cornhuskers, who allowed 36.4 points and 436 yards per game, ranking last in the Big Ten in total defense.
The unit also allowed more than 500 yards in four games, something no Huskers team had done previously.
He came to Lincoln after serving as the UConn head coach for three seasons before he was fired. He also worked as defensive coordinator at Notre Dame and spent time as an assistant coach at Cincinnati, Virginia, Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Western Illinois.
When he was hired by Nebraska in early 2017, Diaco was the program’s highest-paid assistant in history. He was the defensive coordinator at Notre Dame from 2010-13, where he helped the Fighting Irish reach the national championship game in 2012.
