Huskers Host Coaches Clinic, Continue Spring Practice
The Nebraska football team hit the practice fields Friday afternoon, as they continue their preparations for the upcoming Spring Game on April 16. The Huskers practiced in full pads for just over two hours. With temperatures reaching the 60 degree mark, Nebraska utilized the Ed and Joyanne Gass practice fields just northeast of Memorial Stadium.
"Today wasn't a great day by us, by any means," offensive coordinator Tim Beck said following practice. "I love our effort, I love our toughness, I love the way we are competing, and we just made some dumb mistakes today. But it's practice six and that why we are practicing. We keep trying to build a little bit on the offense, and I've been pleased this spring."
Along with practice, the Huskers also welcomed over 800 coaches to campus in conjunction with the annual High School Spring Coaches Clinic. Beck said he enjoys hosting many of the top high school coaches from around the Midwest.
"I appreciate them coming out," Beck said. "I was there once, too. It's a lot of fun to come to these venues and see how other people practice. I respect what they do a lot."
Beck also touched on Curenski Gilleylen and Jamal Turner's position changes.
"They are both fast players, and we are trying to find places for them," Beck said. "I'm not sure if the changes are permanent yet, but both of those guys are open to the idea. They want to help the team in any way that they can."
