KEARNEY, Neb. — A former UNK assistant coach is pulling another Loper coach to his new school.

Eric Lee Jr. announced on social media Sunday that he will be the new secondary coach at Lincoln (Mo.) University. In his new job, Lee will work under Moses Harper, who left his spot as wide receivers coach at UNK to become head coach at Lincoln. UNK and Lincoln are both in Div. ll.

“Thankful for my time here at Kearney and to Coach Held for the opportunity to be apart of such a tremendous group of individuals,” Lee said on X.

Lee spent the past season with the Lopers as a graduate assistant working with the secondary. He came to Nebraska-Kearney after playing five seasons at Nebraska as a cornerback. The Colorado native played in 38 games for the Huskers and was a four-time member of the Nebraska Scholar Athlete Honor Roll.

Second-year head coach Ryan Held filled Harper’s spot with Tyler Harris, who was wide receivers coach at conference-foe Emporia State.
