Nebraska head football coach Bo Pelini is still considering candidates for at least one position on his revamped offensive coaching staff, according to the Lincoln Journal Star. Offensive coordinator Shawn Watson and receivers coach Ted Gilmore are on their way out. Neither will be retained. Watson reportedly is in the mix for at least two NFL coaching jobs. Third-year running backs coach Tim Beck will take over play-calling duties, leaving Pelini with two hires to make on offense. Apparently, the lead candidate for one of the full-time offensive staff positions is former Husker center John Garrison, an intern on the current staff. Meanwhile, Pelini is in talks with candidates for the final spot on the offensive staff. As previously reported, Ross Els will take over as linebackers coach and Corey Raymond as secondary coach. The Journal Star has learned that Pelini plans to unveil the four new hires simultaneously, probably sometime next week, as opposed to formally announcing the hires of Els and Raymond this week.
