Corn Flakes: Will Bolt Bolts For Texas A&M

Jon Johnston

Nebraska Baseball Associated Head Coach Will Bolt is leaving to take an assistant coaching job at Texas A&M. The move makes sense. He's moving from a Big Ten school to the SEC, working with former Nebraska pitching coach Rob Childress and he was an assistant coach at Texas A&M prior to coming to Nebraska. Bolt played at Nebraska under Head Coach Dave Van Horn.

Bolt is on track to become a head coach, and it always hurts when you lose a good coach, but I have faith that Darin Erstad will find another tough-minded coach as a replacement.

Below is a statement from Head Coach Darin Erstad on Will Bolt taking an assistant coach position at Texas A&M. Coach Erstad will not do any interviews on the departure.

"I appreciate everything Coach Bolt has done as a member of our coaching staff the past three seasons. Both as a player and most recently as a coach, Will has helped make Nebraska baseball what it is today. Will, his wife, Lauren, and their two sons, Jaxson and Austin will always be Huskers."

"If I am (Buckeyes defensive lineman) Michael Bennett's family, and we go on a (playoff) run, you can plan on spending $20,000 going to the Big Ten Championship Game, going to the semi-final game and going to the championship game."

Is that $20k figure too high? I wouldn't bet on it, but it is a reminder that the college football playoff is about the bucks and there is no way that a regular (average income) family will be able to afford attending all these games.
