Scott Frost is impressed with the way Nebraska football players have handled the transition period with his new coaching staff in recent months.
Frost, who was hired in December, praised the Huskers’ “buy-in” during a press conference Wednesday.
“Players have adjusted well. We’ve gotten a lot of buy-in from the players, a lot of effort out of the player and I see a lot of excitement,” Frost said two days before the Huskers start spring practice. “They’ve adjusted to workouts really well and we’ve already seen huge gains from a lot of the workouts they’ve been doing.”
Frost added: “We got good players here, we need more of them. We are going to keep recruiting to our schemes. The players here, I love the buy-in and the work ethic that they have shown us so far. We’ll get a lot out of those guys, so looking forward to watching them practice in the spring and watching them improved.”
The transition is never perfect for a new coaching staff. But Nebraska offensive line coach Greg Austin pointed out the transition in Lincoln was going better for Frost’s staff than it did when the coaches took over at Central Florida two years ago.
O-Line coach Greg Austin says players have done “absolutely everything” asked of them. Said it wasn’t like that when staff started at UCF. Players there were more skeptical at first. #Huskers are eager, hungry, he said.
