Per this piece by the Lincoln Journal-Star today, former Nebraska Cornhuskers Quarterback Joe Ganz will be returning to the Husker sidelines as a Graduate Assistant, primarily helping with the Quarterback coaching.

Ganz, who has been on the Nebraska coaching staff in a GA role the past 2 seasons, had been rumored to be leaving the staff to find a actual QB coach at another program.

Ganz became famous when he entered the 2007 game versus Texas in Austin, and started the final 3 games of that season, which was the last of Bill Callahan. In those 3 games, he amassed a school record 510 yards passing and 7 touchdown passes in a 73-31 route of Kansas State, and 484 yards and 6 total touchdowns in a loss at Colorado in the final game that year.

During his Senior season, Ganz threw for over 3500 yards and 25 touchdowns, and was the team MVP as well as the MVP of the '09 Konica Minolta Gator Bowl.
