Big Ol' Scott Frost-Nebraska News Drops While He's Coaching UCF Game

Frost will return to his alma mater for a seven-year deal that will pay approximately $35 million.

Frost, a native of Wood River, Neb., who quarterbacked NU to the 1997 national championship, had always been the clear No. 1 choice to replace former head coach Mike Riley even well before Riley was sacked.

Frost led UCF to a 11-0 regular season and into the American Athletic Conference Championship game.

Sunshine returns during the day tomorrow and the lack of storms will continue right through the weekend. With sunny breaks and a flow from the south, temperatures climb to the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Frost, who is originally from Wood River, Nebraska, played quarterback for the Huskers from 1995-97, winning a national championship under Tom Osborne during his final year.

When asked about interest from Nebraska, Frost replied, "I'd be hurt if Nebraska wasn't interested in me".

While McMurphy is reporting that Frost has agreed to Nebraska's offer, he does add the caveat that UCF's head honcho was feeling "serious cold feet and remorse" in the leadup to Saturday's AAC title game against Memphis. At 10-1, Memphis could have been in position to sneak into the College Football Playoff if not for a loss to the Knights earlier in the season.
