Scott Frost hired as head coach of Nebraska

Scott Frost hired as Nebraska's new head football coach

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

The University fired former head coach Mike Riley on November 25 after three seasons.

When asked about interest from Nebraska, Frost replied, "I'd be hurt if Nebraska wasn't interested in me".




Despite owning just two seasons of head coaching experience, Frost, 42, emerged as college football's hottest name after a remarkable turnaround at UCF.

Under Frost, UCF became the first program in Football Bowl Subdivision history to go from a winless season to a ideal regular season in just two years. The Knights, which are now 12-0, were 0-12 in 2015 before he took over. Quarterback McKenzie Milton has played a big role in helping to carry one of the nation's most prolific offenses. He was Nebraska's No. 1 target from well before the Huskers let Mike Riley go. Nebraska won the National title in 1997 with Frost at the helm.

Previously, Frost was the offensive coordinator for the University of Oregon.
