LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- While his teammates enjoyed some down time last week, Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez spent his spring break working with a quarterback coach in southern California.
The Cornhuskers resumed practice Monday after taking last week
off. Martinez went home and fine-tuned his footwork with
quarterback coach Steve Calhoun. Western Athletic Conference
freshman of the year Cody Fajardo of Nevada and Washington
quarterback Keith Price also joined in the workouts.
Martinez completed 56 percent of his passes last season for
2,089 yards and 13 touchdowns, but he struggled throwing the deep
ball with his unconventional motion was criticized. Offensive
coordinator Tim Beck said the way Martinez turns his body and uses
his feet could alleviate some of his problems.
