Two assistant coaches to meet local fans Tuesday morning

    Athletic Director Bill Moos, Head Coach Scott Frost and members of the Nebraska football staff will be on a Husker Nation Tour next week presented by First National Bank.
    Imperial is on the two-day, 26-town blitz that will take place on Monday and Tuesday.
    While Frost and Athletic Director Moos won’t be here, Husker Assistant Coaches Erik Chinander and Frank Verducci will.
    The two assistants will  meet with the public Tuesday morning from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the new 4-H building on the fairgrounds.

    Prior to coming to Imperial, Chinander and Verducci will be in Ogallala Monday night from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Open Range Grill.
    From here the pair will travel to McCook and then Lexington.
    The statewide tour will kick off Monday with Frost, Moos and Associate A.D. for Football Matt Davison highlighting the upcoming football season  during stops in Scottsbluff and Alliance. The trio will be at the Gering Civic Center for a mid-day event, followed by an early evening gathering at Newberry’s in Alliance.
