As fall camp begins a new era is underway at Nebraska-Kearney where Josh Lamberson is preparing for his first season as head coach. The former All-American quarterback at Northwest Missouri State spent the past seven years as an assistant in the MIAA and takes over a UNK program that has finished 3-8 in each of the last three seasons.
Lamberson previously served as the offensive coordinator at Central Missouri where the Mules led the MIAA by averaging nearly 36 points per game last season. He will try to jump start a UNK offense that averaged just over 18 points per game in 2014.
“We’re going to be very similar. Schematically there is going to be some changes”, said Lamberson. “I think for the most part how it’s run and the way it is run is going to be very similar to UCM.”
As a native of Wilber, Lamberson recognizes the potential of a Loper program that last made it to the NCAA division two playoffs in 2011.
UNK opens at home on September third against Northwest Missouri State.
