Nebraska Women's Gymnastic Coach Suddenly Retires

University of Nebraska officials say Dan Kendig has retired as head coach of the Nebraska's women's gymnastics team "effective immediately". 

“We thank Dan for his contributions to the Nebraska women’s gymnastics program over the past quarter-century and wish him well in the future,” Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos said in a statement.

Kendig led the Huskers to 14 conference titles and 12 Super Six Finals appearances. “I have had the great fortune of coaching at Nebraska for more than two decades and have cherished every moment of that time,” Kendig said in the statement. “My greatest memories will be the opportunity to work with so many talented and high-achieving young women who have excelled in the gym, in the classroom and in the community.  I have worked with many great people at Nebraska and developed countless life-long friendships," he says.  "I am proud of what we accomplished and have been blessed with great assistant coaches and student-athletes through the years. I want to thank the great people of Nebraska for the wonderful memories.”  

Heather Brink will serve as the interim head coach for the 2018-19 season.  Brink has been an assistant at Nebraska for eight seasons, including the past four as Associate Head Coach.
