Current, former Huskers, fans respond to hiring of Scott Frost — Twitter reaction


Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman reported Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos is telling recruits Frost already has 90 percent of his staff in place, the majority of coaches coming from his current UCF staff. After inheriting a team that finished 0-12 in 2015, Frost led the Golden Knights to a nation-leading six-win improvement in 2016. Before taking over as head coach at UCF, Frost spent time as an assistant at OR (2009-15) and Northern Iowa (2007-08) and served as a graduate assistant at Kansas State (2006) and Nebraska (2002).

Frost played for and coached under some of the top coaches around.

The fourth quarter of the AAC Championship Game between UCF and Memphis was completely insane, as the frame ended 48-48 to push the game to overtime. His defense was third in the FCS in takeways with 40 and ninth in scoring defense (17.7 points per game).

The 42-year-old led the Huskers to a share of the National Championship in 1997 with a 42-17 victory over Peyton Manning and the Tennessee Volunteers in the Orange Bowl.

According to the press release sent to media members, Frost agreed to a seven-year, $35 million contract with Nebraska.

In the National Football League he played for Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick with the New York Jets and Jon Gruden with Tampa Bay.
