Scott Frost hired as head coach of Nebraska

Scott Frost hired as head coach of Nebraska

Rumors of the 42-year-old college football coach and Nebraska-native returning home have been in the works for weeks, but Frost worked to remain loyal to his undefeated Knights at the University of Central Florida through the remainder of their regular season and a win against the Memphis Tigers Saturday in the American Athletic Conference championship game.

Frost played with Stanford for two years before transferring to Nebraska where he was Cornhuskers' quarterback in 1996 and 1997. At the time, the Knights were an out-and-out mess and were coming off an 0-12 season. Nebraska won the National title in 1997 with Frost at the helm. "I have been fortunate to be at a wonderful school the last two years, but Nebraska is a special place with a storied tradition and a fan base which is second to none". I am truly humbled to be here.

After playing for legendary coaches Bill Walsh, Tom Osborne, Bill Parcells, Bill Belichick and Tom Gruden during his collegiate and National Football League career, Frost served as a graduate assistant at his alma mater Nebraska under Frank Solich in 2002. Riley spent three seasons as the head football coach in Lincoln and finished with a 19-19 record in his three years at the helm.

"I am thrilled that [Frost] is returning to his alma mater to lead the Husker football program", Moos said.

Frost's statement ended with, "Go Big Red!" "I would not have the opportunity to be in this position without a lot of great people who have helped me throughout my career". Next year's schedule includes games against traditional conference powerhouses Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin.

While he's only been a head coach for two seasons, Frost has a wide range of coaching experience as an assistant, particularly his time at OR working under Chip Kelly and Mark Helfrich.
