Hoiberg bounces Sadler at Nebraska

After firing assistant coach Matt AbdelMassih, the changes continue on Fred Hoiberg’s staff at Nebraska.

Today, special assistant to the head coach Doc Sadler was let go. Hoiberg said, ““Doc has given his heart and soul to the Nebraska basketball program twice in his coaching career, and we appreciate all his contributions to the success of Husker basketball,” Hoiberg said. “Doc has a great basketball mind and has been a valuable resource on our coaching staffs both here and at Iowa State. I wish him nothing but the best in the future.”

According to the release, Sadler’s position has “been eliminated.”

Sadler had been at Nebraska in this role since 2019. He was actually the head coach Nebraska from 2006-12, and then took over at Southern Miss (2014-19).

Nebraska has lost 20-games in each of Hoiberg’s first three seasons, including a 10-22 (4-16 Big Ten) record this past season.
