Lincoln - The Nebraska football team welcomed nearly 800 coaches to spring practice Friday afternoon at the Hawks Championships Center. As part of the Spring Coaches Clinic, the group watched the team practice for nearly 2 ½ hours at the indoor facility. The clinic will continue later Friday evening with former Husker and current Wisconsin Athletic Director Barry Alvarez addressing the group.
Friday’s practice was the sixth of 15 practices in the spring for the Huskers, with the team ending practice with a short scrimmage.
“Both the offense and the defense has their good and bad moments,” Offensive Coordinator Shawn Watson said. “Spring practice is all about getting out here and seeing what these kids can do and I think they’re responding well.”
The coaches clinic will continue Saturday with the group taking in the morning’s practice, before they meet with former Colorado State Head Coach Sonny Lubick.
