|Position:||Associate AD - Football|
Matt Davison is in his second season serving as the Associate Athletic Director for Football. A former Husker football and basketball player, Davison was a teammate of Scott Frost. Davison joined Frost's staff after a career in the medical sales field, but Davison always remained involved with Husker athletics as a color commentator for the Husker Sports Network’s football and men’s basketball radio broadcasts. Davison is still an analyst for the network's game-day football broadcasts.
Davison was a four-year wide receiver from 1997 to 2000, finishing his career ranked second in school history with 93 receptions (currently 13th) and 1,456 receiving yards (currently 11th). He was a three-time honorable-mention All-Big 12 selection and was a part of two Big 12 championship teams and the 1997 national championship team. In 1997, Davison caught a touchdown pass from Scott Frost that deflected off fellow split end Shevin Wiggins’ foot on the final play of regulation to force overtime at Missouri, a game the Huskers went on to win to preserve their perfect season. That play took home the 1997 ESPY for the College Football and Overall Play of the Year.
Davison also excelled in the classroom at Nebraska, as he was a three-time first-team academic All-Big 12 honoree and twice was named to the academic all-district team. Davison was also recognized for his work in the community as a two-time member of the Brook Berringer Citizenship Team. Davison earned his degree in communication studies from Nebraska in 2001.
Matt and his wife, Allie, have a daughter, Reece.
