As Nebraska football starts spring practice Tuesday, head coach Scott Frost met with the media on Monday and discussed a variety of topics. Frost said Nebraska will release football testing results similar to its approach back in the 90’s when Boyd Epley would report the top five athletes in a series of drills. Frost said that safety Deontai Williams has broke the all time school record for the agility run. The coach also said that Logan Smothers, Matt Masker and Heinrich Haarberg should all expect to receive plenty of reps during the spring as Nebraska looks for a back up to starting quarterback Adrian Martinez. Frost declined to provide any detail on injuries or on players who may not be able to participate in spring camp.
Nebraska is currently scheduled to play only one home game in the month of September this year. Coach Frost talked about the possibility of adding another home game in September and the positive effect it could have on recruiting as well as the financial boost it could give the city of Lincoln.
Frost said that Mike Dawson will take over as special teams coach while receiving assistance and input from other coaches.
Nebraska will plan to play its annual spring game on May 1st at Memorial Stadium.
