The most energetic coach on the husker practice field has to be Ryan Held.

The 43-year-old has had a longtime passion for the Big Red. Held was a Husker split end between 1993 to 1996 and also served as a graduate assistant in 1997.

Held is thrilled to be back home at his alma mater in Nebraska.

Held has worked his way through the coaching ranks over the past 17 years. Most of his experience has come at the junior college level,where he became a tenacious recruiter. Head Coach Scott Frost remembered his former Husker teammate and hired him to coach running backs at Central Florida.

When held coached at Central Florida the running backs flourished in the offense. Last season the Knights ran for 25-hundred yards and had 38 rushing touchdowns.
