Former Nebraska football coach Rich Fisher is back in the college ranks. Fisher has come back to the NCAA after yet another stint as a high school coach, joining the Boston College staff. There is a bit of a wrinkle when it comes to the situation surrounding the former Bo Pelini underling.

In order to get back in the college game, Fisher has taken a job that won't actually pay him any money. Football Scoop announced earlier this week that the coach was working with the Golden Eagles as part of a number of different assistant coaching hires.

Nebraska football alum finds new job

Rich Fisher has bounced back and forth between the college game and high school sports over the last few years. It appears he's decided he wants to stay in the NCAA but wasn't able to find a paying job that was attractive enough for him to take.

Fisher was brought in by Bo Pelini in 2011 during what was supposed to be a staff shakeup that would help the Cornhuskers take the next step. He served on the staff until Pelini and the rest of his assistants were fired after the 2014 season.

Since the group was fired, several assistants have managed to find other jobs in major college football but the wide receivers' coach went about a year where a new job didn't materialize.

Eventually, he got a call from a California high school and decided to take the job at Santa Margarita High School.

He's been there since 2016 but apparently has the itch again for the college game. Perhaps because there simply aren't that many coaches that go from the High School ranks to the NCAA, he still hasn't been able to find a full-time assistant position.

Finding himself at a good school

If the former Nebraska football coach has been waiting for the right opportunity, rather than no opportunities presenting themselves, then Boston College certainly fits the bill. Head coach Steve Addazio is entering his seventh season and seems to have the Golden Eagles on a stable footing.

In an ACC that has gotten noticeably better from top to bottom thanks to Clemson, Miami, Virginia Tech and even Virginia seeing an uptick in talent and wins, it's been hard for BC to post a ton of wins.

Still, the school has the respect of the national media.

There was a time during the 2018 season where Addazio's bunch were ranked 17th in the AP Poll. They are expected to once again compete for a bowl game, if not for a division crown.

The volunteer job is yet another interesting twist in what has been a rather odd career. Before he came to coach receivers for the Nebraska football team, he was coaching high school golf in Colorado. Before that, he had been a linebackers coach on the college level. Now he'll try his hand as a kind of "jack of all trades" at the ACC school.
