Nebraska offensive coordinator Troy Walters wants to make one thing clear: The Huskers’ new coaching staff expects big things out of the team this season.
“The standards are high here at Nebraska,” Walters said in a Twitter video. “We’re trying to win championships. And that’s the mindset the guys have, and that’s the culture we want to create.”
Check out the rest of Walters’ comments in the video below.
Building that 🏆 culture.

Walters comes to Nebraska after two years at UCF, where he served as Scott Frost’s offensive coordinator. With Walters’ guidance, the Knights averaged 530 yards per game (fifth in the nation) and 48.2 points per game (first in the nation) en route to a 13-0 record and a Peach Bowl victory over Auburn.
Nebraska’s offense ranked in the middle of the pack in the Big Ten last season. The Huskers averaged 25.8 points per game, the sixth-best average in the league.
CBS Sports’ Tom Fornelli listed Nebraska as a likely candidate to have a two-win improvement in 2018. Walters, however, expects the Huskers to see even more improvement after a 4-8 campaign.
“We didn’t come here to be 6-6. We didn’t come here to be average,” he said.
