Scott Frost to leave UCF for Nebraska's head coaching job, ESPN reports

A University of Nebraska spokesperson has announced Scott Frost will take over head coaching duties for the Cornhusker football team.

The University fired former head coach Mike Riley on November 25 after three seasons.

As for his playing career, Frost went 24-2 as a two-year starter for Nebraska at quarterback and joined the ranks of legendary Huskers when he guided NU to the 1997 national title.

He then took Central Florida to a different level this season, rolling to a ideal 12-0 record and then winning the American Athletic Conference Championship on Saturday afternoon with a 62-55 double-overtime victory over Memphis. I am truly humbled to be here. "I hope I'm wrong, but there's little question in my mind now that Frost will be the next head coach of 'Huskers". It's unclear if Frost will remain with the Knights for their bowl game.

He returned to Nebraska and sat out the team's 1995 national championship season due to transfer rules. "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". The coaches did vote Nebraska No. 1, and MI was crowned champion by The Associated Press.

1998-2003 - drafted in the third round of the NFL Draft by the New York Jets in 1998, played (mostly safety) for the Jets, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He then went to OR to work as receivers coach under Kelly, and when Helfrich took over as head coach in 2013, he appointed Frost as his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. They also have won an NCAA-record 46 conference championships, but none since 1999.

Frost will be the first person since Frank Solich to both play and coach at Nebraska. At 10-1, Memphis could have been in position to sneak into the College Football Playoff if not for a loss to the Knights earlier in the season.

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