Scott Frost to lead Nebraska Football Program

Scott Frost to lead Nebraska Football Program

All indications are Scott Frost is headed to Nebraska.

Several reports indicated that the move was imminent as Frost was coaching Central Florida to a win during the AAC conference championship game on Saturday. The Knights, which are now 12-0, were 0-12 in 2015 before he took over. I am truly humbled to be here.

After achieving a ideal regular season last Friday against the University of South Florida, the Knights beat the Tigers 62-55 in double overtime Saturday, winning their conference championship.

In addition to head coaching, Frost spent time at OR as wide receivers coach from 2009-13 before being promoted to offensive coordinator from 2013-15.

Success has followed Frost throughout both his coaching and playing career.

He coached linebackers at Northern Iowa in 2007 and became co-defensive coordinator the next year.

The hype around the game isn't just about producing a likely New Year's Six bowl game representative.

Frost played with Stanford for two years before transferring to Nebraska where he was Cornhuskers' quarterback in 1996 and 1997.

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. Nebraska won the National title in 1997 with Frost at the helm. His mother, Carol, was an Olympic track athlete and was the head coach of the Nebraska women's track and field team from 1977 to 1980.

Frost has agreed to a 7-year deal with Nebraska worth $35 million, McMurphy said.

In the National Football League he played for Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick with the New York Jets and Jon Gruden with Tampa Bay.
