It’s no secret Nebraska defensive coordinator Bob Diaco is an energetic guy.
He’s also a highly touted leader with head coaching experience and was seen as one of the top assistant coaching hires this offseason after he was dismissed at UConn.
The new leader of the “Blackshirts” has a way with words, as evidenced by this mashup of 17 quotes in 35 seconds from a Diaco press conference compiled by Kevin Sjuts of KOLN/KGIN-TV in Lincoln.
Good luck not laughing.

Some highlights include:
“The mood lighting going here, huh? Nice!”
“It’s probably like getting grade-10 sandpaper rubbed on your face every day.”
“We are about players and players playing the plays and not necessarily the plays.”
In his first year as the Huskers DC, Diaco looks to lead the “Blackshirts” to prominence.
He played his college ball at Iowa as a linebacker and coached as an assistant at Eastern, Western and Central Michigan, Western Illinois, Virginia, Cincinnati and Notre Dame before taking the UConn head coaching job for three years.
