LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A domestic assault charge against a former University of Nebraska football coach has been dismissed.

Online court records filed Monday say Rick Kaczenski (kuh-ZIHN’-skee) decided to participate in the Community Corrections Diversion Program, so Lancaster County prosecutors in Lincoln agreed to dismiss the misdemeanor charge. The charge can be refiled if he doesn’t complete the program.

In March Lincoln officers were sent to a Lincoln home to check a report about a domestic argument. Officers found a woman with a cut to her forehead and scratches to her face and neck. Officers say Kaczenski had thrown a picture frame at the 33-year-old woman.

The 40-year-old Kaczenski was the Huskers’ defensive line coach from 2012 through 2014. He joined Nebraska after five years as the University of Iowa’s defensive line coach.
