Nebraska Football 2018

Postby Coyote » Sun Dec 03, 2017 4:04 pm

The coaching staff looks like it's beginning to be from UCF:

Scott Frost, Head Coach
Troy Walters, Offensive Coordinator
Mario Verduzco, Quarter Backs
Ryan Held, Running Backs
Greg Austin, Offensive Line

Erik Chinander, Defensive Coordinator
Jovan Dewitt, Linebackers coach/special teams coach

Will they keep
Keith Williams, Wide Receivers
John Parrella, Defensive Line
Trent Bray, Linebackers

Apparently Frost was promised $5m for his staff.

Yep..

It sounds like, from what Frost said in the presser, he expects most of his UCF coaching staff to follow him m to NU..

Nice job turning the page Mark.. NU football for 2018 starts today :thumb: ...

Now for recruiting, I haven't heard Terry Wilson's name mentioned anywhere yet, but they are going after Tennessee commit, Adrian Martinez, a four-star, dual-threat quarterback from Fresno, California. I still think Tanner Lee is going to transfer to a team more suited for his skill set, I wouldn't be surprised if he lands in Wisconsin. As for O'Brien or Gebbia, who knows until they learn Frost's run-pass option, more zone-read and more triple-option concept, than Riley's drop back pro-style offense.

Tanner Lee could cut it in Wisconsin? Was the O-line that bad?

Tanner Lee vs. Alex Hornibrook? I'm going Lee in that offense ...
Nebraska's O Line? How many times did you see the line miss every defender... Bad assignments...

Here we go, all of Frost's UCF coaches will follow him to Lincoln :

Troy Walters - Offensive Coordinator / Wide Receivers
Mario Verduzco - Quarterbacks coach
Ryan Held - Running backs coach
Sean Beckton - Tight ends coach
Greg Austin - Offensive line coach

Erik Chinander - Defensive Coordinator
Mike Dawson - Defensive Line coach
Travis Fisher - Defensive Backs coach
Javon Dewitt - Outside Linebacker/Special teams coach

Zach Duval - Head strength and conditioning coach

And come January 1st look for Barrett Ruud to join this team as the Inside Linebackers coach as NCAA allows a 10th coach on staffs.

Bummer. Terry Wilson commits to Kentucky.
Another player also decommits but we gain a solid DB and a fast WR.

Yes Wilson Committed to Kentucky but it is worth noting that even after the visit he did not have a Husker offer.

Rumors... Huskers are so confident they will sign Adrian Martinez, that Frost told Wilson he should go look elsewhere...

I heard a national sports show make a brief comment on this and it was basically that it is not often that a NEW HC gets their #1 QB target to switch in such short time and come on board. They commented that the Tenn turmoil didn't hurt but it was more about SF than anything

Hopefully at least 1 stays as all FB teams need depth at QB.

I agree with that. No substitute for quality depth as injuries occur throughout the course of a season...

Didn't Martinez also just have shoulder surgery? Might want to make sure they keep the other QBs just in case.

No question about it in my mind..

The kid is not NFL ready and would have benefitted from another year of college football regardless of his system “fit”..

He has tools, but he’s too raw. I don’t think he’ll get drafted.. But he could be included in an NFL teams crop of rookie free agents signed AFTER the 2018 draft...

When Lee first heard that Frost was coming he and O'Brien watched UCF film and was excited about the yards and points the system scored. When they had the Frost official press conference he seemed to be excited. But most of the local radio announcers were basically saying he should graduate transfer for his final year, somewhere with a good offensive line so he could show off his accuracy. Going pro was said to be his second option. They must have received positive responses to their NFL inquiries that would make him think his best shot was there. To transfer again to a new environment for one year must have felt like too much. I wish him luck and hope he doesn't become another Sam Keller.

I think Tanner Lee received strong hints that he was done here from none other then Scott Frost himself. I clearly saw Frost sending those hints and I clearly see now that Tanner Lee got those hints. Tanner Lee will never play a down in the NFL and both Scott Frost and I know it! Tanner Lee is talking trash as he cuts and runs for the hills. Straight up Scott Frost was going to get his A$$ kicked this year if he went with Tanner Lee.
