Nebraska is in the market for a new athletic director. Multiple articles are starting to link former Husker linebacker Ed Stewart to the job. Stewart’s bio is impressive, he was a Butkus award finalist, Big 8 defensive player of the year and a consensus All-American. Since his time as a Blackshirt, Stewart has spent 14 years with the Big 12 as part of the ‘senior management team.’

He certainly seems to have the qualifications to become an athletic director and he has a clear Nebraska connection. He also hails from the Golden Age of Husker football, which seems to be a prerequisite for this slow, agonizing rebuild. If Stewart is the choice, Nebraska will have a relatively young, yet experienced person at the helm.

Plus, we get to enjoy all the rumors of “Nebraska going back to the Big 12!?!”
