Former Nebraska defensive line coach Rick Kaczenski, part of Bo Pelini’s staff that was fired in December, was arrested Sunday on a charge of third-degree domestic assault and remains in jail as of Monday morning. Lincoln police arrested the 40-year old Kaczenski Sunday afternoon after they had already responded to a call from someone outside the Kaczenski’s home regarding arguments between he and his wife late Saturday night/early Sunday.
According to the police report, Kaczenski’s 33-year old wife suffered a cut to her forehead and scratches to her face and neck, but did not seek medical treatment at a hospital. Kaczenski allegedly threw a picture frame at her head.
Suspects arrested on suspicion of domestic assault charges in Lancaster County remain in jail until their arraignment and can’t be released on bond. He was NU’s defensive line coach for three seasons. Prior to that he was a defensive line coach at Iowa.
