Nebraska Cornhuskers News: Noah Vedral joins Kansas, more

Former Nebraska Cornhuskers football player Noah Vedral has officially started his coaching career with a former Big 8 rival.

Noah Vedral has had quite an interesting career around college football. That career started with the UCF Knights. Then he moved to the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team when Scott Frost took over. Vedral finished his career with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

Now that Vedral’s playing days are over, it appears his coaching career has started. The former quarterback just joined the Kansas Jayhawks. Vedral joined Lance Leipold’s staff as a volunteer strength intern.

Vedral’s family certainly has a ton of ties to the Nebraska Cornhuskers. However, he’s also got some ties to KU, considering that his younger brother Ezra will be a linebacker for the Jayhawks this fall. His younger sister Anna is also a track and field star with Kansas.

During his days as a member of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Noah Vedral was mostly a backup, though he did start two games in the 2019 season after Adrian Martinez fell to injury. His best career game as a Husker was an October 26 matchup that year against Indiana when he completed 14-of-16 passes for 201 yards and ran for 21 yards and a touchdown. The Huskers still lost 38-31.
