Scott Frost named new UCF Knights head coach

The Central Florida Knights went to the Pac-12 to find their new head coach. They have hired Oregon Ducks offensive coordinator Scott Frost as their new head coach.

The Knights chose Frost to lead the team into the future, because of his exciting offense. He’s also been influenced by a lot of well-known head coaches in Tommy Osborne, Jon Gruden, Bill Parcels, and Chip Kelly.

With the Ducks, his offense was the sixth-highest offense this season. He also faces a difficult job of turning around this current culture there.

The Knights lost every game this season. However, in the first three weeks, they had two one-point losses, before George O’Leary resigned and Danny Barrett was named interim head coach.

The Knights scored more than 20-points just twice this season. While on the other hand, the Ducks scored just 20-points in all but one game, which was a loss to the Utah Utes (62-20).

The Ducks scored 40 or 50 points in six games, including their regular season finale 52-42 against the Oregon State Beavers.

Over the weekend, there was speculation that Bowling Green Falcons head coach Dino Babers would be named the UCF head coach. However, he went to Twitter to dispel those rumors.

The 40-year-old Frost was the starting quarterback for the Nebraska Cornhuskers when they shared the National Championship with the Michigan Wolverines. He spent six seasons in the NFL before going into coaching in 2002.

He joined the Ducks coaching staff in 2009 as the receivers coach under Kelly. When Kelly left for the Philadelphia Eagles, Mark Helfrich was promoted to the head coach and he then promoted Frost to be the team’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Just two years ago, under O’Leary, the team went 12-1 and won the 2013 Fiesta Bowl. If Frost can recruit Florida as well as coaching his high-octane offense, it would be no time before the Knights are back as a prominent team.
