CollegeBaseCollege Kickoff Countdown is a daily series on the On Campus blog. There are now 16 days until the opening day of the 2014 season.

Number of the day: 16

That’s the number of seasons that Erie native Rick Kaczenski has served as a college coach. Kaczenski, currently in his third season as Nebraska’s defensive line coach, was a Cathedral Prep and Notre Dame standout during his playing career.

He was a star tight end with the Ramblers in the early 1990s. At Notre Dame, he switched to center, playing in 40 games and starting his final three seasons from 1995 to 1997.

After a year with the Prep staff in 1998, he has had coaching stops at South Carolina, South Carolina State, East Tennessee State, Elon and Iowa before joining the Cornhuskers.

• Meadville’s Foster: An active area player wears the jersey No. 16 for Temple. Meadville graduate Artrel Foster will be a redshirt freshman with the Owls this season. The 6-foot, 170-pound Foster will attempt to earn playing time at defensive back.
