Milt Tenopir remembrance, 10.2.16

Brenden Stai speaks at a gathering honoring Milt Tenopir's life on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016, at Memorial Stadium. Tenopir died Sept. 25 of that year.

Brenden Stai, a first-team All-American offensive guard for Nebraska in 1994, has a new job, as director of development for the Nebraska Athletic Development team.

According to its Twitter account, Nebraska Athletic Development is the home to the student-athlete experience fund, helping support 660 student-athletes.

A native of Yorba Linda, California, Stai combined with Zach Wiegert to give Nebraska one of the best right sides of the line in program history, as both were first-team All-Americans for the Huskers' 1994 national championship team.

Stai also was a starter in 1993, but broke his right fibula seven games into the season. Nebraska's rushing average in the final four contests dropped 41 yards per game as a result. He was a third-round selection by the Pittsburgh Steelers (91st overall) and spent a total of eight seasons in the NFL.
