LINCOLN, Neb. — Mike Dawson will return to Nebraska to coach outside linebackers after spending the 2019 season in the NFL.

Coach Scott Frost announced Thursday that he had rehired Dawson, who coached the Cornhuskers’ defensive line in 2018. Dawson was the New York Giants’ outside linebackers coach this past season. Dawson previously coached the defensive line for Frost at Central Florida.
