After playing eight seasons in the NFL, and coaching for six years at the power five level, Huskers offensive coordinator Troy Walters has seen his share of great football.

One of the many coaches following Scott Frost from UCF, Walters takes over the Huskers offense after revamping the Knights offense to one of the top contenders in the nation.

Peaking at the American Athletic conference championship, where UCF totaled 727 yards on his side of the ball.

Now as he gets to work with Nebraska in the second week of Spring training, Walters sees the same progress in the making for Big Red.

"Best offense I've been around," Walters said. "That's coming from Indianapolis Colts, to Arizona, Minneapolis, because you can do so much out of this offense," Walters continued.

"You can put guys in different situations, different positions to be successful and be creative. As long as you understand the base and we got a great staff, you know coaches that really think outside the box," Walters stated.

"So every game is a new game plan, not only the best offensive system I've been a part of, but the best offensive staff I've been a part of."

Walters and his staff will definitely have their work cut out for them, taking over an offense who averaged almost 23 points less than UCF last season in averaged points a game.

The Huskers will continue their spring training into the next month, before having their annual inner team scrimmage spring game on Saturday, Apr. 21. Kick-off scheduled at 11:00 a.m.
