Scott Frost hired as head coach of Nebraska

Born and raised in the state of Nebraska, Frost played his college football for the Cornhuskers and was a quarterback for two national championship teams.

He then went to OR to work as receivers coach under Kelly, and when Helfrich took over as head coach in 2013, he appointed Frost as his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Frost will officially be introduced at a 1 p.m. press conference Sunday afternoon. He will also be bringing several members of his coaching staff from UCF with him including his defensive coordinator Erik Chinander. "I truly believe that we have hired the premier young coach in the country and that exciting times lie ahead". Scott Frost to Nebraska is looking likelier and likelier as the week goes on, but in case you needed one more indication that Frost is coming back to Lincoln, Huskers fans, here you go. Milton's 3,301 passing yards, 429 rushing yards and 36 total touchdowns spark an offense that has three other rushers with at least 200 yards and three touchdowns, and six players with at least 200 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

Frost, a native of Wood River, Neb., who quarterbacked NU to the 1997 national championship, had always been the clear No. 1 choice to replace former head coach Mike Riley even well before Riley was sacked.

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

The 42-year-old Frost will look to help NU return to dominant form. UCF won the American Athletic Conference championship game on Saturday. Frost said he was excited to return to his alma mater to coach in the press release.
