2009 (Senior)
Linebacker Colton Koehler became a contributor at linebacker over his final two seasons in the Nebraska program. A transfer from Nebraska Wesleyan in 2006, Koehler played a key reserve role in both seasons and filled a significant role late in the 2008 campaign in an injury-riddled NU linebacking corps.

Koehler was placed on scholarship before the start of the 2009 season, and played in four games during the year. He made five tackles, including three tackles and a tackle for loss in a shutout victory over Louisiana-Lafayette.

2008 (Junior)
Koehler played in seven games, including five of the final six contests, and had 16 tackles, including seven solo stops. Koehler had a key tackle for loss of Baylor's Jay Finley in the end zone for a fourth-quarter safety, supplying the final points in a 32-20 victory. Koehler had four tackles, including three solo stops at Oklahoma, before recording a team-high eight tackles in a win at Kansas State. He added one tackle in the Gator Bowl in his only career start. 

2007 (Sophomore)
Koehler provided depth behind a veteran group of linebackers, but he did not see game action.

2006 (Redshirt)
Koehler participated in spring drills in 2006, then sat out as a transfer after spending his first semester of college at Nebraska Wesleyan.

Before Nebraska (Harvard HS/Nebraska Wesleyan)
Koehler spent 2005 playing for Coach Brian Keller at Nebraska Wesleyan. Koehler played in eight games and finished with one reception and one tackle. He was a multi-sport standout at Harvard High School, which played eight-man football. Koehler played quarterback for Harvard, and earned Class D-1 honorable-mention all-state recognition. He also played in the Nebraska-Oklahoma eight-man All-Star game and the 28th annual Sertoma Eight-Man All-Star game.

On the hardwood, Koehler was a Class D-1 first-team all-state selection and earned all-league honors in the Twin Valley Conference. Koehler was also selected to the Lincoln Journal Star Academic All-State team.

Koehler began his college career at Nebraska Wesleyan, before transferring across town. He worked as a fullback in his first season in the program, before moving to defense in the spring of 2007. The Harvard, Neb., native is on track to earn his degree in business administration this December.
