Nebraska chancellor Ronnie Green and athletic director Bill Moos released a joint statement.
“Two years ago, we had the tremendous opportunity to bring Scott Frost home to Nebraska to lead our football program into the future,” the statement said. “We are even more committed to that decision today.
“Coach Frost has shown tremendous leadership in beginning to rebuild our football program. We appreciate that a change of this nature will not happen overnight. We are committed to Scott and the direction he is taking this program.
“Scott is the right coach at the right time for this program. We are excited for the heights to which he will take Nebraska football and the tremendous impact he will have in the development of our student athletes.”
Nebraska is 4-5 this season and Frost is 8-13 through his first 21 games in Lincoln.
