Perhaps Cory Ross, the former Nebraska running back, has a future in coaching.
This much is certain: Coaching is in his immediate future.
Ross takes over as interim head coach of the Lincoln Haymakers in the wake of Dave Brumagen's season-long suspension from the Champions Professional Indoor Football League.
In last weekend's game in Omaha, Brumagen shoved Beef running back R.J. Rollins to the ground after Rollins scored what proved to be the game-winning touchdown in Lincoln's 27-23 loss at Ralston Arena. An on-field scrum between Beef players and the coach ensued.
I guess that's one way for the league to make headlines.
Here's a story about Brumagen's suspension.
Here's a video showing why Brumagen is being punished.
So, enter Ross. We should also mention that ex-Husker safety Josh Bullocks has been promoted to defensive coordinator after serving as secondary coach for the first half of the Haymakers' season.
"We are excited to have Cory and Josh step into these roles, as we are confident they will be high-quality coaches that will continue to improve our organization for the future," said Justin Hayes, director of operations and player personnel and an ownership partner with the club.
"Given the adversity and circumstances we have faced as an organization, we are thrilled to have such classy individuals to lead our team."
