On the same day that Frost led UCF to an undefeated season and AAC championship, Nebraska announced that Frost would be coming back to Lincoln to coach the Cornhuskers.
After inheriting a program that finished 0-12 the previous year in 2015, Frost guided the Knights to a 6-7 mark a trip to the Cure Bowl in 2016 in his first season as a head coach.
Scott Frost statement on accepting the Husker head football coaching position.
Right now, the Knights are focused on taking care of business and winning a conference championship.
As for his playing career, Frost went 24-2 as a two-year starter for Nebraska at quarterback and joined the ranks of legendary Huskers when he guided NU to the 1997 national title.
The new Husker coach also played six seasons in the National Football League for four different teams.
Frost will be Nebraska's fourth coach since Frank Solich, who took over for Osborne, was sacked in 2003.
Previously, Frost was the offensive coordinator for the University of Oregon.
"I am thrilled that [Frost] is returning to his alma mater to lead the Husker football program", Moos said. "Specially, I would like to thank Coach Osborne who has played such an integral role in my life over the past two decades, both on and off the field". He started all four of his seasons at Wood River, was the state high school player of the year as a senior in 1992 and one of the nation's most highly recruited quarterbacks.
