UCF's Scott Frost agrees to deal to become Nebraska's next coach

Scott Frost hired as Nebraska's new head football coach

According to insider Brett McMurphy, the Cornhuskers agreed to a seven-year, $35 million deal with Frost, who just led Central Florida to a 62-55 win over Memphis in double-overtime in the AAC Championship game.

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

No one would be surprised if Scott Frost returned to Nebraska to take the Cornhuskers job.

Under Frost, UCF became the first program in Football Bowl Subdivision history to go from a winless season to a flawless regular season in just two years. The turnaround from 0-12 to 12-0 in two years is the quickest of its kind in major college football history. He was Nebraska's No. 1 target from well before the Huskers let Mike Riley go.

Frost played for Nebraska from 1995 to 1997 and served as a graduate assistant in Lincoln in 2002.

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.
