Garrett McGuire uses Honey Buns, Pop-Tarts to help build camaraderie with Huskers
LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) — At 24, Garrett McGuire has already played four seasons of college football at Baylor and coached in the NFL.
And for 18 years, the Nebraska wide receiver coach lived under the same roof as Texas Tech coach Joey McGuire.
“So, I’ve spent 18 years with the best coach I know,” McGuire said during a Thursday news conference.
Nebraska coach Matt Rhule is also one of McGuire’s “biggest influences”.
McGuire played with Rhule at Baylor and coached with him at the Carolina Panthers.
“We have a process and I believe in our process because I was part of it,” he said. “I’ve seen it work, you know. I trust.
Part of that process is developing relationships with players.
“I want to know what they are like, I want to know what their parents are like, you know,” McGuire said. “I want to know their classes.”
About 10 minutes before McGuire took the position on Thursday, he said, six players were in his office “just hanging around”.
“And I was like, ‘Hey kids, I have Honey Buns, I have Pop-Tarts,'” she said.
