Shocking. Darin Erstad has resigned as the Nebraska baseball coach. Erstad, whose team this year came within one out of playing for a regional title cited spending more time with his family.
“I have made the extremely difficult decision to step away from coaching,” Erstad said. “I love this team. I love our staff and I love Nebraska. The bottom line is I do not want to miss seeing our kids grow up. I want to thank our administration and academic staff for all of their support over the last eight years. GBR forever.”
Erstad leaves Nebraska with an all time record of 267-193-1. His team captured the 2017 Big Ten regular season championship and he made four NCAA regionals during his tenure.
This comes as a complete shock. Nebraska just finished their season and now must go searching for a coach. The one and obvious choice would be Will Bolt down at Texas A&M. He left Nebraska after the 2014 season, and the Husker offense has not been the same. Bolt would bring an exciting brand of baseball to Nebraska with power and speed.
This is a rapidly developing story with updates to come.
