The Nebraska Cornhuskers revealed on Friday that Charlton Warren has been hired to coach the secondary.
Warren spent the past nine season at Air Force, where he also played as a defensive back in the 1990s.
Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini issued a statement about the hire:
Charlton Warren will be an excellent addition to our coaching staff. He is well respected in the coaching profession and he has been a part of several successful defenses at Air Force. Charlton has great energy and will be an outstanding teacher and mentor for our defensive backs. We look forward to him hitting the ground running, both in working with the young men in our program and on the recruiting trail (Huskers.com).
Warren himself also issued a statement:
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.
Air Force excelled at pass defense under Warren’s tutelage, finishing in the top ten nationally in yards allowed per game on multiple occasions.
