Nebraska Football: Bill Busch is the right man for special teams

It was announced late last night that Nebraska football would hire Bill Busch as special teams coordinator. Let me start by saying that I am a fan of the hire. Busch worked with Nebraska this past season as a defensive analyst. He also worked a little bit on special teams. The fact that he is getting a larger role is good for the program.

You probably read Steven M. Sipple’s report on the glowing reviews Bush has received. Ed Orgeron noted that Busch helped LSU in the recruitment of Joe Burrow. In fact, the former head coach went so far as to say that Busch was the single reason LSU got Burrow. Those are certainly big words, especially when you consider what the quarterback has become.

An impressive resume

When you look at Busch’s resume overall, he knows what Nebraska is about. He was here from 2004-2007 as well as from 1990-1993. He was on the LSU staff that won the national title in 2019.

This isn’t just a favor promotion on the part of Scott Frost. Busch knows football.  He knows how to work with the players and make them great. Just look at the work he did with Grant Delpit.

Perhaps even bigger than that, he knows how to recruit. Recruiting I think is one of the biggest strengths that he has. Of course, recruiting is only good if you can develop players. I think the track record of the players he’s worked with speaks for themselves.

He is a man who knows football.  Being the special teams coordinator is something that should be able to fit him quite well. He knows structure, and he knows what it takes to get the job done. Precision and structure are two things that Nebraska football special teams have not had in quite a while. Here’s to hoping that he can restore some order on what has been a very shaky unit.
