Solich coached at Nebraska from 1998-2003 as the head coach. He first began as the Nebraska running backs coach from 1983-1997 and served as the Nebraska freshman had coach from 1979-1982.
The Huskers enjoyed success under his leadership, as they won a Big 12 Championship in 1999 and won three Big 12 12 North Division titles from 1999-2001. Solich was fired by then Nebraska athletic director Steve Pederson after a 9-3 season in 2003.
Since the firing, Nebraska football is never achieved the same level of success. Bo Pelini was able to help the Nebraska football program win Big 12 North Division titles from 2008-2010 as well as a Legends Division title in 2012. However, he was never able to fully achieve the success that Solich was able to bring to the table.
Honoring a Husker legend.

Success away from Nebraska football
To add insult to injury, Solich had success at Ohio. He coached at Ohio from 2005-2020 and was able to capture four MAC East division championships in 2006, 2009, 2011, and 2016. He was the MAC Coach of The Year in 2006.
Nebraska football will be able to honor a person who played a big role in the program’s history. Moreover, they will be doing so in a proper way. This is a major announcement for Nebraska football, as they look to honor a key figure in the program’s history. It will be exciting to see him return, and be a big part of what is sure to be a fun weekend, with several recruits on hand as well.
Things are looking up for the Nebraska football program, and that includes honoring a legend. I know I will be glued to my seat for the festivities.
