Scott Frost is coming home.

Frost, the UCF coach and former Nebraska quarterback, will be named the Cornhuskers’ next head coach, according to multiple reports Saturday.

The 42-year-old Frost, a former quarterback who led the Cornhuskers to a share of the 1997 national championship, has led the Knights to an 11-0 record heading into Saturday’s American Athletic Conference championship game against Memphis.

He will replace Mike Riley at Nebraska. Riley was fired after three seasons, with Nebraska going 4-8 this season.

UCF made Frost, who was the offensive coordinator at Oregon, a first-time head coach in December 2015 after the Knights finished 0-12. He has led the Knights to a 18-7 record in his two seasons.


  1. There came a collective sigh throughout the land, that land of Devaney & Osborne with National Championships in their midst, we welcome you back to your home state, Scott Frost not to be our Savior as we already have that one filled but to take the raw material of youth & drive & make our adversaries fear their day when they once again face the mighty from the Cornhusker State.
