Scott Frost Aims to Unite the People of Nebraska Behind Husker Football

The UCF head coach will leave Orlando to take a job as Nebraska's next head coach.

The reports came shortly after Central Florida defeated Memphis 62-55 in double overtime to win the American Athletic Conference championship to finish the season a ideal 12-0. It will be a homecoming for Frost, who grew up in Nebraska and played football with the Cornhuskers from 1995-1997. Former reporter Brett McMurphy was the first to report Frost's departure, releasing it as the No. 14 Knights were battling No. 20 Memphis in overtime of Championship Game. Frost was then drafted by the Jets and played five seasons in the National Football League with New York, Cleveland and Tampa Bay. The 42-year-old Frost has led a remarkable turnaround at Central Florida;.

He inherited an 0-12 football team at the end of the 2015 season and quickly turned the program around, helping the Knights earn their first 11-0 regular season record in school history and a No. 14 ranking by the College Football Playoff committee - the highest mark by any Group of 5 school since the playoff system started in 2014.

Central Florida's athletic director later said that Frost will coach UCF during their bowl game. I am truly humbled to be here.

"I am appreciative of the confidence Bill Moos and our University leadership have in me to lead this program". 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.


"It is a great honor and privilege to have the opportunity to return to Nebraska and to lead the Husker football program", Frost said in the statement. The state of Nebraska and the Husker program mean a great deal to me. I would not have the opportunity to be in this position without a lot of great people who have helped me throughout my career.

"Coach (Osborne) has been a mentor to me my whole life, he definitely played a part in this".

Frost said the timing was right for him to return to his alma mater and he thinks the state is hungry for unity.

Frost will face pressure right away to earn his money. An introductory press conference is scheduled for Sunday. This was also seen when the team's Twitter page sent out a congratulatory message following Nebraska's announcement.
