Orlando, FL - Earlier in the week, FootballScoop.com reported Nebraska wide receivers coach Rich Fisher would likely take over the recruiting coordinator position at Nebraska. This was just days after predicting Rick Kaczenski would be the Huskers next defensive line coach.
On Thursday, Fisher responded to the rumors after hearing about it in a few text messages from friends on Wednesday.
"That's all premature," Fisher said. "I guess I have to call you guys (the media) to find out what my job titles are."
What he won't have to ask the media is if he wants the job if offered by Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini.
"I think any coach wants to advance his career," Fisher said. "When you get an opportunity to take on more responsibility, I think it's good for you. If Bo thinks that highly of me, that I'm that guy, I will cherish the opportunity and look forward to it."
Big Red Report has projected that Pelini would not announce who his recruiting coordinator would be until after the bowl game. Something that Fisher seemed to back up.
"I think it's all been about bowl preparation and getting his defensive coordinator and new coach in line," Fisher said. "At some point in time, maybe we'll sit down and talk about that."
In his first year with Nebraska, Fisher spent the previous two seasons as the head coach at Rivers School in Weston, Mass., where he compiled a 12-5 record. In 2010, Fisher coached Rivers School to a perfect 8-0 regular season, the school's first undefeated regular season since 1915 and its only ISL championship. In fact, it was just the school's third winning season in the past 25 years and the first since 1979. The team also played in the Norm Walker Bowl at Gillette Stadium, the first-ever bowl game for Rivers School.
