Former Husker Daniel Bullocks joins Jaguars coaching staff

Nebraska's Daniel Bullocks, now an NFL assistant, warms up before a game against Baylor in 2005.

Former Nebraska safety Daniel Bullocks was announced Friday as an assistant defensive backs coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars. 

Bullocks played in 48 games for the Huskers from 2001-05. He finished his five-year career with eight interceptions, 22 pass breakups and 226 tackles. 

Bullocks was named second team All-Big 12 as a senior in 2005. The Detroit Lions drafted him in the second round in 2006. He spent four years in the NFL.

Bullocks began his coaching career working with the secondary at Northern Iowa in 2012. He spent three years there before leaving to become the Eastern Michigan cornerbacks coach in January 2015.

The Jaguars made Bullocks' hiring official on Friday. He'll be an assistant under Jaguars defensive backs coach Dewayne Walker.

In other coaching news, ex-Husker assistant Rich Fisher has been named the head coach at Santa Margarita Catholic High School in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. 

Fisher was the wide receivers coach under Bo Pelini from 2010-14. He was out of coaching in 2015.

Santa Margarita is the same high school that produced former Husker quarterback Johnny Stanton.
