Dustin Haines serves as an offensive analyst in his first season on staff at Nebraska. Haines followed Scott Frost to Lincoln after spending the past two seasons on Frost’s Central Florida staff.
Haines served as an offensive graduate assistant at UCF in 2016 and 2017. The Knights boasted the nation’s most improved offense in Haines’ two seasons on staff. UCF led the nation in scoring offense and ranked fifth in total offense in 2017, just two seasons after the Knights were 125th nationally in scoring offense and 127th in total offense.
UCF marked Haines’ first career coaching stop, as he joined the Knights following his playing career. Haines primarily played quarterback as an Oregon Duck from 2010 to 2013, but he also saw time at running back and wide receiver. He began his Oregon career as a walk-on and earned a scholarship as a senior. He was also rewarded for his leadership and character by serving as a two-year captain with the Ducks. While Haines was at Oregon, Frost served as an offensive assistant.
Haines graduated with a degree in general science and general social science applied in economics and business from Oregon in 2014. Following his collegiate career, Haines traveled to Europe and played in the Austrian Football League in the spring of 2015.
