Charlton Warren, above, is the newest assistant on Bo Pelini’s coaching staff and will be featured on Nebraska football’s weekly radio show on the Huskers Sports Network (HSN) from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday night. The lineup for HSN’s monthly Talk to the Director of Athletics Show has been set for the same timeslot on Thursday night. Nebraska head coaches Dave Harris (cross country) and Ashley Rose (rifle) are Thursday guests in the show’s third segment. Veteran Lincoln runner Sarah Larson will be Shawn Eichorst’s fourth-segment guest. Studio host Greg Sharpe will interview all guests on both nights.
Warren joined Nebraska’s football staff after spending nine years on the defensive staff at the Air Force Academy, where he was a standout defensive back for the Falcons in the late 1990s. In his final two years at Air Force, Warren was the Academy’s associate head coach and defensive coordinator, and he has reinforced that reputation since his arrival at Nebraska last February.
Harris is in his second year as head cross country coach for the men’s and women’s teams. Also the distance coach for NU’s men’s and women’s track and field teams, Harris coached previously at Emporia State University in Kansas. Larson, a graduate of Lincoln Northeast High School, was the Huskers’ MVP runner in 2012 and named team captain in 2013. The only three-time letterwinner on the Nebraska women’s cross country roster this fall, Larson is expected to miss the entire 2014 season with a leg injury. A scholar-athlete honoree, Larson has earned the Hero Leadership Award twice at Nebraska and was a member of the inaugural Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.
A native of Eubank, Kentucky, Rose came to Nebraska after spending the 2013-14 season as an assistant coach at the University of Kentucky. She inherited a Nebraska program that finished fifth at the 2014 NCAA Championships. A four-year letterwinner and a team captain at Murray State, Rose’s career for the Racers includes a third-place overall finish in air rifle at the 2010 NCAA Championships.
