Former Husker offensive coordinator Shawn Watson has accepted a quality control position at Indiana.
Watson spent five seasons at Nebraska, four as the offensive coordinator starting in 2007. Before assuming that role, he was the tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator for one season.
Hired by Bill Callahan, Watson was one of only two assistants to be retained by Bo Pelini.
Watson's stay in Lincoln didn't last past the 2010 season, though. The Huskers finished seventh in the Big Ten that year in both scoring offense (30.9 points per game) and total offense (398.1 yards per game). NU did lead the conference in rushing that year, but finished last in passing with 150.6 yards per game.
After Nebraska, Watson landed at Louisville where he started as quarterbacks coach and was promoted to offensive coordinator during the 2011 season. He followed Charlie Strong to Texas in 2014 where he held the same position. In December, it was announced Texas would not extend his contract.
Now, Watson will assist with an offense at Indiana that led the Big Ten in scoring, total yardage, passing yardage and finished second in rushing yardage last season.
NU plays Indiana next season on Oct. 15 in Bloomington.
