Scott Frost to leave UCF for Nebraska's head coaching job, ESPN reports

No. 14 UCF wins OT thriller in AAC title game

No. 14 UCF wins OT thriller in AAC title game

George Schroeder of USA Today confirmed reports by Bleacher Report's Lars Anderson, Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman and college football reporter Brett McMurphy that Frost agreed to a seven-year, $35 million contract with the Cornhuskers.

So, Nebraska will get the man that they want and Frost will take his dream job, but boy, that nearly blew up right in the face of the Cornhuskers.

After rebuffing head coaching overtures from several schools, Frost chose UCF in 2016, citing the school's potential and proximity to talented recruits.

Frost finished one more week of coaching UCF, culminating in a 62-55 win over Memphis in the American Athletic Conference championship game.

In the last four seasons, Nebraska has won two games - combined - against those five teams. He spent a season as Northern Iowa's defensive coordinator in 2008, the team's linebackers coach in 2007, and was a graduate assistant at Kansas State in 2006 and at Nebraska in 2002. He was a member of two national championship-winning teams and was subsequently selected by the New York Jets in the third round of the 1998 NFL draft.

Frost joined Oregon's coaching staff as wide receivers coach in 2009 under head coach Chip Kelly. After months of rumors linking him to Nebraska, an announcement is expected Sunday on his future. "And he's getting a lot of attention".

I can confirm: Scott Frost will be named coach at Nebraska. "And when the time is right, we'll make them".
