Nebraska Football News: Charlton Warren providing stabilizing influence after Bo Pelini's firing

The only member of former Nebraska Cornhuskers head coach Bo Pelini's staff to be retained, defensive backs coach Charlton Warren is preaching the same thing he always has - consistency.

“I see a lot of young kids with a lot of talent that have a chance to play a decent amount of football,” Warren said, via 247Sports. “Their biggest thing is we have to go from being good - good effort and good hustle - to being great. The only way we’re going to get that way is to be consistent. My message to my guys is always we have to be consistent. Everyday, all day. Weight room or off-the-field, whatever the case maybe. We got to be consistent. If we can be consistent, we can be pretty good.”

Rather than focusing on the upheaval of the staff which brings former Oregon State coach Mike Riley to Lincolin to replace Pelini, Warren's got his eyes on the little things with his positional group in the defensive backfield.

“Consistency can be in tackling, can be in coverage, can be in ball skills - it’s a big brush,” he said. “So if we’re consistent in the little things like footwork, hand placement, eye placement, attention to detail, formation adjustments - we’ll take away some of the problems we’ve had in the past."
