Nebraska defensive coordinator Bob Diaco says the evaluation process continues in the early stages of fall camp. Diaco is installing a new 3-4 defense and he calls the unit a work in progress.
“Guys are working hard and trying hard and there is a higher understanding of what we are asking them to do”, said Diaco. “We’ve got a long, long, long way to go.”
Diaco says the biggest improvement will come with game experience.
“There are physically capable players and they care a whole bunch”, added Diaco. “They are a lot of fun to work with. They are really a joy.”
Also, new assistant coach Scott Booker, who oversees special teams, said he anticipates a “happy medium” of starters and freshmen on special teams, noting head coach MikeRiley has the final say.
