When Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini was fired on Sunday, athletic director Shawn Eichorst indicated Husker assistant coaches would continue to recruit, but be limited to on-campus. According to Valor Christian (CO) four-star defensive back Eric Lee, a commitment since last February, he expects to see assistant coach Charlton Warren still this week.
In a conversation with Big Red Report's Bryan Munson, Lee admitted he hasn't talked to Warren since Saturday, but his father had.
"He's coming to see me on Wednesday," said Lee, who is curious what defense Nebraska might run in the future, but admits he probably won't get answers until a hire is made.
The news might indicate Warren, in his first-year with Nebraska, could be in-line to stay on the Husker coaching staff in the future. The former Air Force defensive coordinator has strong ties with the Southeast as a native of Georgia.
Meanwhile Lee tweeted his final senior highlights of the year on Monday.
Lee also spoke with Munson regarding fellow Nebraska prospects/commits Kendall Bussey and Avery Anderson. Both indicated they are evaluating all options, with Bussey saying he's "still committed," but needing to find a plan B if things "fall through" at Nebraska.
