Nebraska reportedly hiring UCF's Scott Frost as new head coach

Nebraska reportedly hiring UCF's Scott Frost as new head coach

ESPN confirms multiple media reports that UCF Coach Scott Frost has agreed to a 7-year $35-million deal to come to Nebraska. And then UCF hit the afterburners for the current campaign - Frost's crew rolled to an 12-0 record, capped off with Saturday's wild shootout win over Memphis in the AAC Championship Game.

Even before Nebraska fired coach Mike Riley, there was a near universal feeling that the program would pursue Frost, who led UCF to a 12-0 regular season.

Frost was a former Huskers quarterback under legendary coach Tom Osborne.

A finalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award as a senior who became just the 10th player in college football history to rush and pass for more than 1,000 yards in a season, Frost was drafted by the New Jets with the 67th overall pick in the third round of the 1998 NFL Draft. "That's what we've done", Frost said. "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".

Supermoon To Shine Over Idaho Sunday
Despite what the popular term might suggest, the supermoon is in fact our regular moon, but much closer to Earth than usual. However, in my new house, the moon does not seem anywhere near as big or bright even though it's the exact same moon.

Frost will be the first person since Frank Solich to both play and coach at Nebraska.

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. Frost will be officially introduced as Nebraska's head coach during a press conference on Sunday, Dec. 3, at noon.

UCF has had some supporters in the College Football Playoff argument this year due to their undefeated record. 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. He's also a Nebraska native, from Wood River.

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