Even before Nebraska fired coach Mike Riley, there was a near universal feeling that the program would pursue Frost, who led UCF to a 12-0 regular season.

Frost met with the team before the news conference and said, "I saw a lot of fire in their eyes".

Update: It was only a matter of time before Nebraska confirmed it had hired former quarterback Scott Frost as its new coach. "These things happen at the wrong time".

"This is a celebration, a celebration for the University of Nebraska and for Husker football", Moos said. Frost says he wants to put the muscle back in the walk-on program."This place needs that", he said. This season was fun.

"2017 has been one of the best years of my life".

While UCF readies to play in one of the major bowl games, Nebraska fans are delighted to have landed Frost, a semi-finalist for the Coach of the Year award. At Stanford he was coached by Hall of Famer Bill Walsh, and of course Tom Osborne at Nebraska.

What they're saying about Jimbo Fisher's departure from Florida State
The Seminoles won the 2013 national championship and were ranked in the final AP poll in each of his first seven campaigns. Florida State (5-6) faces Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday and needs a win to be bowl eligible for a 36th consecutive season.


1998-2003 - drafted in the third round of the NFL Draft by the New York Jets in 1998, played (mostly safety) for the Jets, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

And Frost assembled an impressive assistant coaching and support staff that allowed senior linebacker Shaquem Griffin become a national college football star. The Panthers gave up just 107.1 yards per game on the ground that season. He said he was not considered for the Husker coaching job the last time it was open and he was glad that he wasn't in the running.

Most coaches are gone at this stage in the proceedings.

Frost also said "we still have some talking to do" as it relates to him returning to UCF to coach the Knights' bowl game.

UCF athletics director Danny White will look to move quickly on the search for UCF's fourth head coach since 2004. The Golden Knights were 0-12 the year before Frost took over.
