Beck spent the last six seasons with the Cornhuskers, the last four as its offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
Before that, he coached wide receivers and was the pass game coordinator at Kansas, where he served on Mark Mangino's staff along with current Ohio State offensive line coach Ed Warinner in 2007.
Like his former boss and current Youngstown State coach Bo Pelini, Beck is a native of Youngstown and graduate of Cardinal Mooney High School. He followed Pelini to the Cornhuskers in 2008 and helped the coach to a 67-27 record over seven seasons.
This season, before the ousting of Pelini's administration in Lincoln, Nebraska averaged 38 points and 452 yards a game in a 9-4 campaign that ended in a loss to USC.
