NORMAN, Okla. -- Linebacker Corey Nelson has enjoyed his first few months with Tim Kish as the Oklahoma’s new linebackers coach. He feels the former Arizona coach has preached discipline, on and off the field.

“Coach Kish has done and excellent job with us, to stay on us, on and off the field.” Nelson said. “Those are the key things he’s done to be an amazing coach. As a linebacker corps, I feel like we are so much closer than we were last year, we are able to trust each other with anything.”

More trust could lead to fewer blown assignments for the Sooners defense, a major problem during the disappointing 2011 season.
