To be fair This past season Nebraska returned to their iconic Black Shirt -defense something Bill Callahan and Mike Riley destroyed. I was ecstatic when Nebraska's hired Frost and the icing on the cake was when Frost had
his hiring announcement in the Corn Husker's weight room.

Before Frost got his first HC job I felt he was going to be the next excellent novice coach because he played and coached in several different spots: in college he played QB , in NFL he was a safety \ ST , at North Iowa he was a Linebackers coach \DC and Oregon WR coach\OC. He even won a co-national championship at UCF!

I understood it will take some time to de- Mike Riley the program. He even brought back some formers players from their halcyon days to serve in the coaching staff! It's unreasonable to expect Frost would automatically being This team back to the 90's because they are in a more stringent conference. To Sprint 66's chagrin there's not enough HS\JUCO's advailable to exclusively run power football . Oregon is pursuing the beloved Chip Kelly , they may learn the same lesson that a return in not a rewinding the clock.By now Nebraska should be a 8-4 team ,not 5-7& 4-8. He stuck with the bungling Martinez way too long and that poor decision costed a few games per year.

Bo Pelini struck a good balance by embracing Nebraska 's glorious past while keeping current by re hiring a few assistants Callahan fired and Pelini utilized the Corn Husker I-Formation with the Pistol \ Shot Gun, and the QB keeper. Granted Bo blew 2 games in all of his 7 seasons but the Corn Huskers finishing at a solid 9-4 and 10-4 very year. Now they're pinning for 6-6.

This new OC hire has given me serious doubts now I'll have to wait until next fall to see if my doubts are correct.I hope to be wrong about this but it seems unlikely.

There are some HCs that call plays. Some HCs that coach QBs.
The designation of an Offensive Coordinator under those circumstances is a difficult situation.

Examples: Steve Spurrier, Mike Leach, Scott Frost, Dan Mullen, Lane Kiffen ... the list goes on.
