Scott Frost returning to Nebraska after leading UCF revival

Frost, who was a quarterback for the Cornhuskers when they won a share of the 1997 national championship, is expected to replace Mike Riley as the team's head coach, ESPN reported.

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 was a former Huskers quarterback under legendary coach Tom Osborne.

Despite owning just two seasons of head coaching experience, Frost, 42, emerged as college football's hottest name after a remarkable turnaround at UCF. Frost is faced with the task of rebuilding a program that during a 4-8 season had their most losses since 1957, their fewest wins since 1961 and saw opponents score more than 50 points four times. In 2015, the season before Frost took over, UCF finished with a record of 0-12. At UCF, Frost amassed a record of 18-7, including an undefeated regular season.

"I am appreciative of the confidence Bill Moos and our university leadership have in me to lead this program", Frost said.
