Bandys grad returning to college basketball as special assitant
Catawba County native Bobby Lutz is back in college basketball, confirming Thursday he’s signed a contract to join the coaching staff at Nebraska.
Lutz, 61, told HobbsDailyReport.com in a social media message that he’s been in Nebraska this week and already inked a contract to return to coaching with the Huskers.
As of Thursday night, his hiring has not yet been announced by the Nebraska athletic department.
The Lincoln (Neb.) Journal Star, after reporting Lutz was under consideration, published a sourced story on Wednesday saying Lutz has accepted a coaching position with the Huskers.
Contacted earlier in the week by HobbsDailyReport.com, Lutz said he was in Nebraska but he was not prepared at that point to discuss the position at Nebraska.
Lutz, is a 1976 graduate of Bandys and his coaching experience includes tenures as a girls’ varsity head coach at Parkwood — where he won a state 2A title — and as head boys’ varsity head coach at Bunker Hill.
He left Bunker Hill after the 1983-84 season, when the Bears went 18-7 in his only year there, to enter college coaching at Clemson.
