The lone vacancy on Bo Pelini‘s Nebraska coaching staff has been filled, the school announced Friday morning.
Charlton Warren, NU stated in a press release, has been hired to oversee the Cornhuskers’ secondary. Warren has spent the past nine seasons at Air Force, including the last two years as defensive coordinator.
“Charlton Warren will be an excellent addition to our coaching staff,” Pelini said in a statement. “He is well-respected in the coaching profession and he has been a part of several successful defenses at Air Force. Charlton has great energy and will be an outstanding teacher and mentor for our defensive backs. We look forward to him hitting the ground running, both in working with the young men in our program and on the recruiting trail.”
The 37-year-old Warren, who played cornerback for the Falcons in the late nineties, had spent his entire coaching career at the service academy prior to his move to Lincoln. During his nine years in Colorado Springs, Warren had coached AF’s defensive backs.
“Joining the Nebraska program is a tremendous opportunity for my family and me, and we are extremely excited to be here,” Warren said. “I want to thank all the great folks at Air Force who have helped me over the past nine seasons especially Coach Troy Calhoun.
“Nebraska football has a rich tradition and history and I can’t wait to have a chance to lead and work with the current group of players on this team. I am also big-time excited to hit the recruiting trail and start closing in and meeting the future players who want to join this program and do tremendous things in Lincoln. I appreciate the opportunity, and the faith Coach Pelini and his staff have shown by adding me to the staff and now it’s time to get to work.”
Warren will replace Terry Joseph, who left earlier this year for the same position at Texas A&M.
