Nebraska AD reveals ‘metrics’ from Scott Frost’s contract after judge’s decision
The Scott Frost era ended a few weeks ago in Lincoln, but the stories and information are now being brought to light. Nebraska AD Trev Alberts last season had told the Husker faithful that there were metrics Frost needed to reach in his restructured contract.
The metrics were never released until now after a Lancaster County judge ordered that the University of Nebraska-Lincoln reveal the metrics.
Alberts addressed the decision and revealed the metrics during his Tuesday appearance on Huskers Radio Network (via Huskers247):
“I thought for a variety of reasons that it was in the best interest of the university not to (make it public). So the university chose to challenge that lawsuit. The judge ruled not in our favor…” Alberts said. “It really isn’t a huge secret. What I wanted from Scott, and we talked about it a lot, was incremental progress. So Scott and I had talked about … we needed to get to a bowl game – and not backing into a bowl game. A minimum of six games. And so if we could six games, get to a bowl game, then we could sort of revert back to his original contract.”
Alberts, during his appearance, had said he wanted it to be more of a verbal agreement, but former head coach Scott Frost wanted something in writing. According to Alberts, there is no written agreement with head men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg who also had a restructured contract this offseason.
The Huskers are 3-4 overall and 2-2 in B1G play sitting in third place in the West division.
Nebraska is idle this week before hosting Illinois on Saturday, October 29, at 3:30 ET, with TV coverage TBA.
