Gophers didn’t dig NU gem Gary
By Rich Kaipust / World-Herald Bureau
The 53-year-old Gary is back in the Twin Cities now, where he works as a behavioral specialist for the special education program in St. Paul. He’s a part-time football assistant at Concordia University — where he was hired 10 years ago by former Concordia coach and ex-NU quarterback Mark Mauer — and helps with the track team at Columbia Heights High School.
Though he’s back in Big Ten country, Gary didn’t necessarily approve at first of the Huskers’ departure from the Big 12/Big Eight.
“I didn’t like that at all,” he said. “I understand why they did it, but being biased about the old Big Eight and Oklahoma, I thought some things would be missed. In time maybe we’ll start another rivalry, but it will never be Oklahoma and Nebraska.”
