Frost to be named Nebraska football head coach

"I am appreciative of the confidence (athletic director) Bill Moos and our University leadership have in me to lead this program".

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. UCF's wild double overtime 62-55 victory over high-powered Memphis in the AAC Championship Game closed the books on a 12-0 season as the Knights prepare for their bowl game, which will likely be the Peach Bowl against an at-large power-conference team. Frost helped NU earn a share of the national title in 1997 and engineered a 24-2 career as the starter here.

It took a long, rumor-filled week before it finally became official, but in the end, Nebraska got the man they wanted by naming Frost as its 33rd head coach.

When asked about interest from Nebraska, Frost replied, "I'd be hurt if Nebraska wasn't interested in me. When you win a lot, people are interested in you". The program's rise to an undefeated record follows an 0-12 mark in 2015.

Search warrants were executed at the man's home, a business where he had worked, and a relative's property. Victoria Police says the operation is ongoing, however police do not anticipate further arrests.

After sitting out a season because of NCAA transfer rules, Frost succeeded Tommy Frazier at quarterback in 1996, leading the Huskers to an 11-2 record. Frost has guided a high-powered UCF offensive attack that leads the nation in scoring at 49.4 points per game.

A native of Wood River, Neb., Frost and his wife, Ashley, celebrated the birth of their son earlier this month. Frost was born in Nebraska. Frost's success has him squarely in the sights of the Nebraska coaching search. His mother, Carol, was an Olympic track athlete and was the head coach of the Nebraska women's track and field team from 1977 to 1980.

UCF head coach Scott Frost had always been expected to be the next head coach at Nebraska, but late in the fourth quarter with UCF tangling with Memphis to keep its New Years Six bowl hopes and undefeated season intact came the reports of Frost's impending departure from Orlando to Lincoln. We will carry the press conference live on our website.
