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

Scott Frost is expected to be named the next head coach at Nebraska, sources confirmed to ESPN Saturday. 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.

Frost, who played quarterback at Nebraska from 1995-1997, spent the last two seasons at UCF, inheriting a program that went winless in 2015 and going undefeated through the 2017 season.

Frost is a former Nebraska quarterback, winning a National title in 1997.

The New York Jets drafted Frost in the third round in 1998, and he spent six seasons as a safety with four National Football League teams.

The 42-year-old Frost will look to help NU return to dominant form. The state of Nebraska and the Husker program mean a great deal to me.

Rodriguez is now being held in a NY jail and faces a charge of interfering with the custody of a minor. Police were investigating the "blossoming of a potential relationship" between Frisina and Rodriguez.

When asked about interest from Nebraska, Frost replied, "I'd be hurt if Nebraska wasn't interested in me". Frost's success has him squarely in the sights of the Nebraska coaching search.

"I am thrilled that [Frost] is returning to his alma mater to lead the Husker football program", Moos said. Nebraska finished 4-8 this season, the team's worst record in nearly 60 years.

Frost will face pressure right away to earn his money.

A press conference has been scheduled for Sunday. "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".

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.
