CHICAGO, Ill (KMTV) When the Huskers were struggling through their worst season in over 50 years last fall, there were a few Nebraska fans who thought Scott Frost might not want to come home. However, Frost silenced those doubters, returning to his alma mater just over a week after the job came open. 

Now, the new head Husker says he's not afraid of the pressure that could come with returning to Lincoln. 

"Life can be even better at your alma mater," Frost said at Big Ten Media Days. "There can be more challenges at your alma mater. I wouldn't have come back to Nebraska unless the time was right, the situation was right and the people around me were the right people."

Frost is one of a handful of Big Ten coaches who are either leading their alma mater or grew up in their respective state. Urban Meyer has easily had the most success thus far winning 90 percent of his games at Ohio State. 

"Coaching is awesome," said Frost. "You get to make an impact on a lot of kids. Now I get a chance to do it with my mom and dad in town and friends around and family and people that I know and care about at a place that I care about more than anywhere else. I'll deal with some of the potential negatives to have the opportunity to do those things."
