Oregon Head Coach Dan Lanning shared an endearing story about his quarterback Bo Nix on the "Bussin' With The Boys" podcast. During the 2023 offseason, Nix and his wife Izzy were regular visitors at the Lanning residence, often helping with babysitting duties.

When podcast host Taylor Lewan asked if Nix babysitting his kids was a PR move, Lanning responded:

"That story is real. I literally came home one day and Bo's there, I mean, Bo and his wife Izzy and really Casey Rogers and his wife Maya.
"They would come over to our place quite a bit, and every once in a while, Sophia would put them in charge of watching the boys and she'd have a girls' night out. Unbelievable kid, unbelievable family." [Timestamp: 00:02:10]

During last year's PAC-12 media day, Lanning said to the reporters:

"Bo's not just our quarterback, he's also my babysitter. I walked into the house the other day, my wife was out with some of the other coaches' wives, and Bo's in the living room. There's a unique connection there, but it's more than just football. He's a member of the family."

Nix's involvement doesn't stop with him. His wife, Izzy Nix, also takes part in caring for the Lanning boys.
