Busch, Whipple Both Meet With the Media

Both of Nebraska football’s coordinators met with the media following yesterday’s practice. 

Interim defensive coordinator Bill Busch, who began this season coaching the Huskers special teams, said it’s incredible how the defensive players have been working.  Busch also praised the defensive assistant coaches.   “The situation that they’ve been put in is very difficult, and they’ve responded above and beyond,” Busch said.  

Offensive coordinator Mark Whipple said his unit has had good practices the past couple days after having a few days off during the bye week.  Whipple said Casey Thompson is still the starting quarterback.  He talked about the need to get better at keeping Thompson from being sacked.  “We had four last week and that was all communication,” Whipple said, adding they’ve work hard on it this week.
