LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Will Bolt held his first official practice as Nebraska head baseball coach on Thursday.
Bolt was an NU assistant from 2012-2014, then spent the last five years on staff at Texas A&M.
"It feels like yesterday," said Bolt. "Anytime I come put the Husker 'N' on, I put the Nebraska gear on, I'm in Lincoln at this field, I feel like it's home."
Bolt played at NU & was part of the Huskers' first two CWS teams in 2001 & 2002.
"I think it's a perfect match, especially, with all of his background and his great resume," said senior outfielder Joe Acker. "I think he was the perfect choice to replace Coach Erstad. I love him so far."
The Huskers will visit Wichita State for a fall exhibition on Saturday September 21.
