Scott Frost Named Husker Head Football Coach

Scott Frost hired as Nebraska's new head football coach

While Scott Frost coached in the AAC Championship, reports revealed he'll have a new job in 2018. "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'm thrilled to be back because I think the time is right for this, and it wasn't always that way. I would not have the opportunity to be in this position without a lot of great people who have helped me throughout my career", Frost added in his statement. "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". This year the team is 12-0 after a double-overtime 62-55 win over Memphis in Saturday's American Athletic Conference championship game.

"There was a formula that worked here for a long time and times have changed a little but some of those same things are what is going to make this work again".

"I don't blame him at all, it's his home", Lambert said. When Frost was asked about the reports after the game, he would only say that he wanted to talk to his team first.

Moos said Frost was the only person he offered the job. "This was fun. This game was fun".

Frost played for and coached under some of the top coaches around.

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. Under Frost and new defensive coordinator Erik Chinander, Griffin was moved from safety to outside linebacker and become the AAC's 2016 defensive player of the year.

Most coaches are gone at this stage in the proceedings.

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. In 2015, the season before Frost took over, UCF finished with a record of 0-12.

Frost replaces former head coach Mike Riley.
