Greg Sharpe (right) and Matt Davison call a Husker football game. Sharpe also calls Husker baseball games, so the Voice of the Huskers has had a quiet spring.

Parker Gabriel and Chris Basnett talk about the lull in the college football world before a wild June of recruiting visits and workouts begins. In baseball, Spencer Schwellenbach is rising up MLB Draft boards while the Huskers found out Friday that they will not play host to a regional in the NCAA Tournament. 

The Nebraska Athletic Department announced key hires to its multimedia operation as it transitions in-house after more than a decade of working with Learfield/IMG.

The Huskers Radio Network announced the addition of Jessica Coody, who will co-host "Sports Nightly" with Greg Sharpe when the department officially takes control over the programming on its radio network July 1.

Coody has spent the past nine seasons as a sideline and digital reporter for Oklahoma Athletics. She has worked NCAA Final Fours, conference tournaments and more.

The Athletic Department also announced four hires to the newly formed Huskers Athletic Partners department. Riley Courtright, Bob Flannery and Esteban Roman will serve as account executives, and Evan Townsend in account services.
