Nebraska fired coach Scott Frost on September 11 after a 1–2 season start and are looking for a new face on the show. Campbell led the Cyclones to a top-10 finish in 2020 and compiled a 45–34 record with the program.

Meanwhile, Leipold was an assistant at Nebraska from 2001 to 2003 and got his first coaching job at Wisconsin-Whitewater where he won six Division III national titles and went 109-6. From there he went to Buffalo and lifted the program into the top 25 upon joining Kansas. Since joining the Jayhawks, he’s gone 5-10.

Finally, there is O’Brien. He was widely credited for rebuilding Penn State when he was there from 2012 to 2013 before joining the NFL ranks. He led the Texans for seven seasons but was let go at the start of the 2020 season after an 0-4 start. He has since joined Nick Saban’s coaching staff.

Other candidates of interest to the Cornhuskers are Washington State coach Jake Dickert, Coastal Carolina coach Jamey Chadwell and current interim coach Mickey Joseph.
