Nebraska coach Scott Frost releases statement following positive test for COVID-19
Across the country, teams and fans alike continue to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. On Sunday afternoon, Nebraska head coach Scott Frost revealed he tested positive for the virus.
In a statement released by Nebraska Football on social media, Frost revealed the positive test from Sunday morning. Fortunately, the head coach of the Huskers said he is only experiencing mild symptoms but will be isolated during the start of Nebraska’s winter conditioning program.
“Earlier today, I received a positive COVID-19 test results,” wrote Frost. “Fortunately, I have only mild symptoms, am isolating at home, and will work remotely this week. Our coaching staff will do a great job managing the team as our players return to campus to start winter conditioning. I look forward to rejoining the team as soon as possible in accordance with health and safety protocols.”

Hopefully Frost is back on his feet and able to rejoin the team soon without any complications.
To finish the week, Frost and his staff did a good job improving the team via the transfer portal. Ex-Texas QB Casey Thompson and ex-LSU WR Trey Palmer both committed to Nebraska and will provide a boost to the Husker offense in 2022.
