  • Scott Frost hired as Nebraska's new head football coach

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

The 42-year-old Frost, who will be introduced at a Sunday news conference, takes over for Mike Riley, who was sacked last Saturday. UCF won the American Athletic Conference championship game on Saturday. I am truly humbled to be here. Frost will be officially introduced as Nebraska's head coach during a press conference on Sunday, Dec. 3, at noon.

After graduating from Nebraska in 1997 he played in the National Football League for seven seasons and held assistant coach positions at Nebraska, Kansas State, Northern Iowa and OR before taking over at Central Florida in 2016.

While he's only been a head coach for two seasons, Frost has a wide range of coaching experience as an assistant, particularly his time at OR working under Chip Kelly and Mark Helfrich.

With a win in the conference championship game, the Knights are likely going to find themselves in one of the top bowl games this season.

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. He was the starting quarterback in 1996 and on the Huskers last national championship team in 1997. Frost's three predecessors had no ties to Nebraska, and his track record at OR and UCF has fans confident he is the right man to return the Huskers to their place in the college football hierarchy. He's also a Nebraska native, from Wood River.

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