Alabama offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien, Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell and Kansas head coach Lance Leipold have reportedly emerged as the "three leading candidates on top of Nebraska's wish list" amid its head coaching search.
Bruce Feldman of The Athletic reported Tuesday that trio leads a group of 11 potential targets to replace Scott Frost, who was fired following a Sept. 10 loss to Georgia Southern. The Cornhuskers' list includes one internal option: interim head coach Mickey Joseph.
Here's a look at the other coaches linked to the Huskers, per Feldman:
- Kansas State head coach Chris Klieman
- Washington State head coach Jake Dickert
- Coastal Carolina head coach Jamey Chadwell
- Former Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall
- Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule
- Texas special assistant Gary Patterson
- Wisconsin defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard
