Nebraska defense coordinatoir Bob Diaco says the key for any defense is to be sound. Diaco is installing a new 3-4 look for the Huskers but he says that is only part of an overall philosophy.
“Based on the staffs we have been on we’ve built it and 3-4 is a component but like all strong foundations there are other pieces”, said Diaco. “We are pleased with where we are at but we are about players and players playing the plays and not necessarily the plays.”
Diaco says he will coach on game days from the press box and will rely on the defensive staff on the sideline for communication.
“The defensive staff will work to perform at a high level on game day,” added Diaco . “Everybody has a role. We practice those roles. We don’t just talk about the roles. Everybody knows what the roles are in detail and we’ll practice several instances of those roles being executed.”
