Frost reflected on his two seasons at UCF in the interview and noted that there are only a few places in the country where he'd like to be the head coach - a list that seemed to include Nebraska.

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

In college, Frost played quarterback at Stanford from 1993-94 and Nebraska from 1995-97.

Athletic director Bill Moos on Saturday announced the much-anticipated hire a bit later than expected, about two hours after Frost's 12th-ranked UCF team defeated No. 16 Memphis 62-55 in two overtimes in the American Athletic Conference championship game to extend its ideal record to 12-0. I am truly humbled to be here. Next year's schedule includes games against traditional conference powerhouses Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin.

Update: It was only a matter of time before Nebraska confirmed it had hired former quarterback Scott Frost as its new coach. He took over a Knights team that didn't win a game in 2015 and went 6-7 and earned a bowl bid in 2016. Riley only had one season in which the Huskers had a winning season.

Scott Frost statement on accepting the Husker head football coaching position.

He then went to OR to work as receivers coach under Kelly, and when Helfrich took over as head coach in 2013, he appointed Frost as his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Frost said he was excited to return to his alma mater to coach in the press release. Frost, a 42-year-old Wood River native, also faces the pressure of being the popular prodigal-son choice of fans who bought "Frost Warning" t-shirts and started "Bring Scott Frost Back to Nebraska" Facebook pages.

"I am appreciative of the confidence (athletic director) Bill Moos and our University leadership have in me to lead this program". The Huskers have not won a conference championship in football since 1999 and have not contended for a national title since the early 2000s.
