The Nebraska Cornhuskers have a Head Coach once again. This one is a familiar face, as Scott Frost goes home.
Frost has received a seven-year, $35 million deal to become the Cornhuskers Head Coach. He replaces Mike Riley, who was fired last Saturday by the school.
He had to wait until the end of the American Athletic Conference Championship game to accept the offer. The game is presently in the second overtime when the news broke.
Frost was a candidate for numerous jobs this offseason. Yet, the pull of going home outweighed leaving for another school.
He was a candidate for the Florida Gators head coaching job before athletic director Scott Stricklin decided to bring home Dan Mullen last Sunday. Once he spurred the overtures of the Gators, everything lined up for him to go back to Lincoln, Nebraska.
Frost, who was born in Wood River, Nebraska, played for the Cornhuskers from 1995 through 1997. He was also a member of the school’s last National Championship team, which they shared with the Michigan Wolverines, in 1997.
Riley in his three seasons went 19-19 at the school. This past season, the team went 4-8 and missed its first Bowl game since the 2007 season.
Riley had only one winning season with the Cornhuskers, which was a 9-4 record in 2016.
Frost went 18-7 with the Knights. Central Florida will have an interim head coach for its upcoming Bowl vbe4game.
The Knights, under Frost, went 12-0 this season. In his first season in Orlando, Florida, he went 6-7 and guided the team to an appearance in the AutoNation Cure Bowl.
The Knights lost his only Bowl game with the team, as they were defeated 31-13 to the Arkansas State Red Wolves.
