LINCOLN, Neb. -- A signing day without coaches?

The scene at Nebraska was unorthodox on Wednesday as the early signing period opened. With new coach Scott Frost and his staff on the practice field in Orlando with UCF to prepare for the Jan. 1 Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl, a small group convened in the offices at Nebraska to collect letters of intent.

Director of recruiting Sean Dillon ran point in Lincoln. And forget the fax machine. As recruits texted Dillon photos of their signed letters, he stayed in touch with Frost’s chief of staff, Gerrod Lambrecht, on the ground in Florida.
