Scott Frost To Leave UCF For Nebraska

Frost met with the team before the news conference and said, "I saw a lot of fire in their eyes". He said we can put a program on the field that this state will be proud of.

"There was a formula that worked here for a long time and times have changed a little but some of those same things are what is going to make this work again".

Frost, 42, is leaving the Knights after two seasons to become Nebraska's sixth head coach since his idol and former head coach Tom Osborne retired in 1997. 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.

Frost returns to Nebraska after serving as head coach at the University of Central Florida for two years. I knew this place could be the type of place to compete for conference championships every year. "Certainly a celebration of bringing one of our own home, a favorite son". At UCF, Frost amassed a record of 18-7, including an undefeated regular season.

In college, Frost played quarterback at Stanford from 1993-94 and Nebraska from 1995-97. He also plans to give Frost enough time to turn things around in Lincoln.

A seven-year, $35-million deal will make Frost the highest-paid coach in school history and one of the top 15 highest-paid coaches in the sport. "We will build this football program on solid footings, and if we do stub our toe, it's not going to be a house of cards". When Frost was asked about the reports after the game, he would only say that he wanted to talk to his team first.

"I'm thrilled to be back because I think the time is right for this, and it wasn't always that way".

Frost will be the first person since Frank Solich to both play and coach at Nebraska. "I've seen it happen before, and I know it can happen here". Frost guided UCF to an 11-0 record and an American Athletic Conference championship this season, and the Knights are the only remaining unbeaten team in the FBS.

"I'm hoping the Big Ten has to modify their system for us".
