Happy New Year (it's about time)
Hello Husker Fans,
Just a quick note to say, "Happy New Year" to you and yours before it is February. Unlike all of last year, I am actually putting this on our website all by myself. I'm impressed.
Our beloved Huskers finished the year on a high note and now comes a critical time of signing the new guys, both players and coaches. What will 2014 bring? We'll just have to wait and see.
Keep tuned in to this site for not only for football news but also for activities with B1G Atlanta. Hope to see you all real soon.
GO BIG RED!!!
Everything You Need to Know about Charlton Warren
It was the hire Nebraska needed.
In the midst of losing former defensive backs coach Terry Joseph to Texas A&M, head coach Bo Pelini needed to make a hire quickly. Beyond that, the hire needed to be a solid one, especially for recruiting purposes.
Pelini has found Joseph's replacement in former Air Force defensive coordinator Charlton Warren.
In an official university statement, Warren expressed his excitement to join the Huskers' staff:
Nebraska football has a rich tradition and history and I can't wait to have a chance to lead and work with the current group of players on this team. I am also big-time excited to hit the recruiting trail and start closing in and meeting the future players who want to join this program and do tremendous things in Lincoln. I appreciate the opportunity, and the faith Coach Pelini and his staff have shown by adding me to the staff and now it's time to get to work.
Beyond that statement, Nebraska fans are still getting to know Warren. After all, the coach was a He likely wasn't on many Husker fans' radars until the announcement was made.
But he's a coach worth getting to know.
247Sports.com Charlton Warren at Air Force According to Huskers.com, Warren joins Nebraska after nine years on the Falcons' defensive staff. For the past two seasons, Warren had been the associate head coach and defensive coordinator.
He has coached players such as Reggie Rembert and Carson Bird. He also helped Air Force rank in the top 10 in pass defense from 2009 through 2011. While the Falcons' defense struggled in 2012, he has had a lot of coaching success with Air Force.
Aside from his coaching experience, Warren also brings a lot to the recruiting table. From 2005 through 2011, he coordinated Air Force's recruiting. He is also a native of Atlanta, Ga., giving him a recruiting edge in the southeast.
That was a primary concern when Jospeh left. With ties in the south, it was a huge loss for the Huskers' recruiting. Warren aims to eliminate that loss.
In fact, Air Force has 14 players from Georgia, the most of any state other than Texas, per the Omaha World Herald. The hope is that Warren will build the same success in the south for the Huskers.
Warren didn't waste any time, either.
He's already hit the ground running. He was a big part in Jacksonville, Fla. cornerback Chris Jones' decision to flip from Purdue to Nebraska, as reported by Sam McKewon of the Omaha World Herald. McKewon also noted that Jones said Warren "believes in working hard for what you want."
"He said everybody comes in with clean slate and works hard for what they want,” Jones told McKewon.
Warren was even able to make himself known to the Husker community by sharing in his first "Boom" on Twitter.
Needless to say, Warren has made a good first impression with fans. The 37-year-old is set to make a big impact on Nebraska's recruiting.
He is expected to make a big impact as a coach, too.
In the absence of Jospeh, Nebraska fans were curious about who Pelini would find. Now that fans know it's Warren, they can get to know the coach.
He'll give Nebraska a good idea of what he's capable of before national signing day. After that, fans will be anxious to see the coach in action.
In the meantime, he's settling in as the right hire for the Huskers.
