I know the following isn't an earth-shattering story, but man, the above photo of Tom Osborne brings back a flood of memories ...
At any rate, Osborne will be the headline speaker at the 2013 Nebraska Football Spring Coaches Clinic, set for March 28-30 in Lincoln (registration is now open by visiting bigredfootballschool.com or Huskers.com). In addition to Osborne’s speech to the coaches in attendance, all members of the Husker coaching staff will address the group.
Those in attendance will also have the opportunity to watch Husker practices on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning (sometimes that means even media get to watch).
"We are fortunate to once again be able to offer a great group of speakers for our coaches’ clinic, and I hope coaches from around the area take the opportunity to learn and share ideas," Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said in a prepared statement. "As part of our clinic each year, we try to bring in one of the great coaches in our profession, and this year it was a natural to have Coach Osborne as our headline speaker. His coaching record speaks for itself, but his impact on the game of football, this University and the state of Nebraska goes well beyond what happened on the field. I know everyone will appreciate the opportunity to hear from Coach Osborne.”
The list of speakers also includes Iowa Western Community College head coach Scott Strohmeier, who led his team to the 2012 NJCAA national championship.
