"I truly believe that we have hired the premier young coach in the country and that exciting times lie ahead". Sources say Frost has agreed to a seven-year, $35 million contract. Frost said he was excited to return to his alma mater to coach in the press release.

Scott Frost is going home.

Bruce Feldman is the reporter who dropped in from the clouds with the news.

Chris Vannini of The Athletic added that Moos has called a meeting for Sunday, presumably to inform the staff and team of the news. And then UCF hit the afterburners for the current campaign - Frost's crew rolled to an 12-0 record, capped off with Saturday's wild shootout win over Memphis in the AAC Championship Game.


Under Frost, UCF became the first program in Football Bowl Subdivision history to go from a winless season to a ideal regular season in just two years. Scott Frost to Nebraska is looking likelier and likelier as the week goes on, but in case you needed one more indication that Frost is coming back to Lincoln, Huskers fans, here you go.

UCF has had some supporters in the College Football Playoff argument this year due to their undefeated record.

After playing for legendary coaches Bill Walsh, Tom Osborne, Bill Parcells, Bill Belichick and Tom Gruden during his collegiate and National Football League career, Frost served as a graduate assistant at his alma mater Nebraska under Frank Solich in 2002.

Frost will be the first person since Frank Solich to both play and coach at Nebraska.
