Nebraska names Frost as new head coach

McKenzie Milton

During Central Florida's thrilling conference title win over Memphis on Saturday, news broke that Knights coach Scott Frost was going to accept the coaching job at Nebraska, his alma mater.

Riley went 4-8 this season in his third as the Cornhuskers' head coach.

UCF has had some supporters in the College Football Playoff argument this year due to their undefeated record.

It took a long, rumor-filled week before it finally became official, but in the end, Nebraska got the man they wanted by naming Frost as its 33rd head coach. It's unclear if Frost will remain with the Knights for their bowl game.

In a press release, Moos said he hired Frost because "he is a rising star in the profession and a natural fit to lead the Nebraska program".

But, after taking four points from their first two games, Everton managed the same tally from their next seven fixtures and Koeman was sacked.

He returned to Nebraska and sat out the team's 1995 national championship season due to transfer rules. Frost was then drafted by the Jets and played five seasons in the National Football League with New York, Cleveland and Tampa Bay.

Previously, Frost was the offensive coordinator for the University of Oregon. Frost, a 42-year-old Wood River native, also faces the pressure of being the popular prodigal-son choice of fans who bought "Frost Warning" t-shirts and started "Bring Scott Frost Back to Nebraska" Facebook pages.

Frost will be Nebraska's fourth coach since Frank Solich, who took over for Osborne, was sacked in 2003.

"I am appreciative of the confidence Bill Moos and our university leadership have in me to lead this program", Frost said. "Specially, I would like to thank Coach Osborne who has played such an integral role in my life over the past two decades, both on and off the field".
