Riley reaches out to former player

Former Nebraska linebacker Jay Foreman tweeted a screen capture of an email that he and other former players received from Mike Riley on Thursday night.

LINCOLN, Neb. - New Nebraska head football coach Mike Riley sent out an email to former Nebraska Cornhuskers after meeting with his current team on Thursday night.

Former Nebraska linebacker Jay Foreman tweeted a copy of the email shortly after receiving it.

Over the years, Big Red Report has heard from multiple former players that there was sometimes a feeling of disconnect from former head coach Bo Pelini and past players before his arrival. Some players didn't always feel welcome when they were either in town or tried to attend practices. Former defensive back Ralph Brown talked with 93.7 The Ticket about the topic earlier this year.

Still, while it's still incredibly early, it appears Riley is embracing the past.
