Scott Frost Coming To Nebraska

Coaching job profile Pluses and minuses of the UCF vacancy

UCF HC Scott Frost has resigned from his position and will take the head-coaching post at Nebraska. This year the team is 12-0 after a double-overtime 62-55 win over Memphis in Saturday's American Athletic Conference championship game.

The 42-year-old Frost was a member of national championship teams at Nebraska in 1995 and 1997 and becomes the fifth former Husker to lead the NU football program, and first since Frank Solich.

Frost and his staff will coach the Golden Knights in their bowl game - likely the January 1 Peach Bowl - even as several assistants, including future Husker defensive coordinator Erik Chinander, follow Frost to Nebraska. The Golden Knights were 0-12 the year before Frost took over.

He made it a point after Saturday's game to say he loves UCF and Orlando and called it an "unbelievable place with unbelievable potential".

Oklahoma Health Officials Say 2 People Died Due To Influenza
The Washington State Department of Health reported one other flu-related death in the state this season, in Pierce County. In addition to holidays and sweater weather, winter bring with it a less than welcome event: flu season.

Then Nebraska released this video, welcoming Frost home, and making the move official. I am truly humbled to be here. 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 appreciative of the confidence Bill Moos and our University leadership have in me to lead this program".

Frost, who previously worked as Oregon's offensive coordinator, passed on other opportunities before taking his first head coaching job at UCF. The state of Nebraska and the Husker program mean a great deal to me. "Specifically, I would like to thank Coach (Tom) Osborne who has played such an integral role in my life over the past two decades, both on and off the field". Next year's schedule includes games against traditional conference powerhouses Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin.

Frost said the timing was right for him to return to his alma mater and he thinks the state is hungry for unity. This was also seen when the team's Twitter page sent out a congratulatory message following Nebraska's announcement. Frost will be officially introduced as Nebraska's head coach during a press conference on Sunday, Dec. 3, at noon.
