UPDATE: It's official. Nebraska has named Scott Frost its new head coach. Click here for more details.
A source close to the situation says Frost has scheduled a meeting with his team after the postgame press conference at approximately 4:30 CT.— World-Herald Big Red (@OWHbigred) December 2, 2017
As @GeorgeSchroeder wrote, I can confirm: Nebraska is *not* opposed to Frost coaching UCF in the Peach Bowl.— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) December 2, 2017
How many times would Frost - and Nebraska - be referenced on Jan. 1?
I expect Frost to directly address the Nebraska job in this postgame presser. Statement from NU will come soon enough. He was to tell team he was leaving.— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) December 2, 2017
According to our partners at the Omaha World-Herald, Frost will be formally introduced to Nebraska fans during a press conference Sunday at noon.
The Omaha World-Herald's Sam McKewon also reports that many of Frost's assistant coaches, including Defensive Coordinator Erik Chinander, will likely join the Huskers and could start recruiting as soon as this weekend.
Frost was born in Wood River, Nebraska and attended Wood River High School from 1989 to 1993. He transferred from Stanford to Nebraska in 1995 where he helped win a share of the 1997 National Championship after an Orange Bowl win over Peyton Manning's Tennessee team.
During his playing time for the Huskers, Frost became only the tenth player in college football history to both run and pass for more than 1,000 yards.
