Parrella getting his guys ready

Nebraska defensive line coach John Parrella on resuming practices.

New Nebraska defensive line coach John Parrella won't admit it, but the former Blackshirt likely enjoyed the spring break. The newest member of the staff, Parrella didn't get much time after moving to Lincoln before he had to jump right into practices. 

Parrella, who has to replace three starters up front, has a young crop of talent. 

"We are just trying to get them game ready," said Parrella. "Every kid. We are trying to get them ready to play in the game and where they can help you. We are a long ways from that as a group, but we are getting there."
