Nebraska football began spring practices Monday. The team has four new offensive assistant coaches to go along with a new starting quarterback. Husker head coach Scott Frost said coaches and players are working to get on the same page.

“We got some new coaches that need to learn where to go for each period and how we do things in practice. We’re marrying a lot of things, and guys got to get familiar with things,” Frost said. “We’ve got to get familiar with some new concepts and ideas and terms and signals and places to go in practice, and that’s coaches and players alike, and that was kind of expected today, but it’ll get better fast.”

Even though Nebraska has a new offensive coordinator in Mark Whipple, Frost said Nebraska’s offensive strategies will be similar in some ways.

Frost said he was able to coach younger players today and he’ll have more time to coach special teams this season because of fewer responsibilities he has coaching the offense.
