Ekeler out of mix - again

If University of South Florida coach Jim Leavitt still plans on having co-defensive coordinators at USF, he’ll have to do so without Nebraska linebackers coach Mike Ekeler.
Sunday night, Leavitt offered the co-coordinator positions to Ekeler and Iowa State secondary coach Chris Ash. Early Monday afternoon, Ekeler decided he would remain with Nebraska.
Ekeler, 37, had initially interviewed with Leavitt last week, but told the Omaha (Neb.) World Herald on Thursday he was “happy” to be at Nebraska. Still, Leavitt pursued Ekeler a second time after being turned down Sunday by Georgia linebackers coach John Jancek and Colorado secondary coach Greg Brown.
Leavitt is seeking replacements for defensive coordinator Wally Burnham and secondary coach Troy Douglas.
With Ekeler out of the picture, will Leavitt try to pair Ash, 35, with another individual as co-defensive coordinators? Or will Leavitt offer Ash the defensive coordinator position and hire another individual as linebackers coach?
