Position: Assistant Football Strength Coach
Alma Mater: Buffalo

Jasen Carlson is in his first year as an assistant football strength coach at Nebraska in 2018 and his fourth season overall as a collegiate strength coach.

Carlson has worked alongside Nebraska Head Football Strength Coach Zach Duval in each of his stops. Carlson was a sports performance assistant under Duval working with the Central Florida football team in 2016 and 2017. In his two seasons, Carlson helped the Knights post the greatest two-year turnaround in college football history, as UCF went from an 0-12 season to a 13-0 campaign. The turnaround culminated with UCF defeating No. 7 Auburn in the 2018 Peach Bowl, as the Knights finished as the nation's only undefeated team in 2017 and ended the year with a No. 6 ranking.

Carlson's first job came as a graduate assistant under Duval at Wyoming in 2015. Carlson and Duval first became acquainted with each other at the University of Buffalo, where Duval was the Bulls' director or sports performance while Carlson was a player. An offensive lineman, Carlson was a four-year letterwinner and three-year starter at Buffalo from 2010 to 2013, earning all-conference accolades as a senior.
