LINCOLN (KMTV) — The Nebraska football program has parted ways with special teams analyst Jonathan Rutledge after just one season in Lincoln, according to our partners at the Omaha World-Herald.

Rutledge came to NU from Auburn. He helped Nebraska's Connor Culp win the Big Ten Kicker of the Year award but the Huskers finished 115th nationally in special teams efficiency according to ESPN's Power Football Index.

It's uncertain on whether Nebraska will now hire another analyst for the role or make it a full-time assistant coaching position.

Rutledge made $150,000 per year at NU.
