Bold news circling around the the Nebraska Cornhuskers Football offices this afternoon...
Stewart, 50, resigned from his post as Defensive Coordinator of Maryland on Thursday, when he & HC Randy Edsall came to a "mutual understanding" on his dismissal.
Stewart had been at Maryland for three seasons, running both the Defense and the Secondary of the Terps. Before that, Stewart has traveled a whole lot in his coaching career.
The 1995 graduate of Northern Arizona, Stewart spent 7 years in the NFL, either being a DC or Secondary coach for 4 different NFL Franchises. His last two stops were in Dallas from 2007-08, and Philadelphia in 2009. After he left the Eagles, he was the DC at the University of Houston from 2011-2012.
Recruting wise, Stewart was responsible for JuCo's as well as the DFW and Florida areas. He hasn't hit much when it comes to high end recruits, as his biggest gain for Maryland was a high-3 star in Cornerback Will Likely.
Stewart was set to make a touch over $350,000 at Maryland, so it could be that he'll make slightly less at Nebraska.
With the hiring of Stewart, Nebraska now has once again put a bevy of former Coordinators together in the Blackshirt side of the ball.
