Nebraska has added another off-field staffer with deep ties to the state of Texas to its personnel office.

CJ Cavazos, a former Director of College and Professional Relations for the XFL, has more than 25 years of experience in collegiate recruiting and served as CEO of a Texas-based recruiting service that he founded, and will now serve as Nebraska director of football relations. 

“Proud to announce that I am the new Director of Football Relations at The University of Nebraska,” Cavazos announced Thursday on social media. “I would like to thank Coach Matt Ruhle for giving me this awesome opportunity and look forward to helping Nebraska become one of the top teams in the country.”   

Cavazos is the father of former four-star defensive back Lejond Cavazos, who began his career at Ohio State before transferring to North Carolina.
