Got a tip that ex-big leaguer Darin Erstad will be named #Nebraska's new head coach. Intriguing hire.
Erstad was a first-team baseball All-American at Nebraska in 1995, when he hit .410 with 19 HR and 79 RBI. He was also the punter for Nebraska's football team in 1994, a year they won the then-mythical national championship, and in 2008 when with the Astros struck out for the final out in Carlos Zambrano's no-hitter.â†µâ†µ
He'll need to remember to tell his players to get hits, not get hit or get no-hit. Confusing, but then, Erstad is currently Nebraska's hitting coach.
