LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Jeff Christy was the starting catcher on the 2005 Nebraska baseball team that made it to the College World Series. The Lincoln Southeast alum is now back with the Big Red as the new pitching coach on Will Bolt's staff.

“I am extremely excited to be coming back to Nebraska,” Christy said. “This University holds a special place in my heart and can’t thank Coach Bolt and the University enough for this opportunity. I am ready to get to work and excited to meet the players.”

Christy was at Texas A&M the last two seasons as a volunteer assistant under former NU pitching coach & current Aggies' head coach Rob Childress.
