Chris Brasfield joined the Nebraska football staff in March of 2015, and served as the football team's Director of High School Relations. In February of 2016 he transitioned to new role in the athletic department, as he is now the Associate A.D. for Student-Athlete Recruitment and Experience.

Brasfield joined the Nebraska staff following four seasons of working with Nebraska Coach Mike Riley at Oregon State. Brasfield served as the Beavers’ running backs coach from 2011 to 2014 and was regarded as an elite recruiter for Oregon State.

Tailback Storm Woods accounted for more than 2,100 rushing yards during the past three seasons in the Beaver offense. Known for his recruiting ability, Brasfield was recognized in 2012 as one of the top 50 recruiters in the country.

Brasfield gained a wide range of experience at both the collegiate and professional level before his time at Oregon State. He was a defensive graduate assistant at Oregon in 2010, after spending the previous four seasons as the running backs coach at Samford.  Brasfield also served in assistant coaching roles at Midwestern State, Southwest Texas State and TCU.

Brasfield has NFL experience with three organizations, most recently participating in the NFL Minority Coaching Internship program with the Titans in 2009. He also served as an intern with the Oakland Raiders in 2000, and was an area scout for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2001 and 2002.

A San Antonio native, Brasfield has extensive high school coaching experience as well, including stops at Fort Worth’s Country Day, All Saints Episcopal School and Chicago Hope Academy in Illinois.

Brasfield earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees from TCU. He and his wife Sherresa, have three children, Tyson, Taylor and Truman.
