Report: Contract details for new Nebraska coach Scott Frost revealed
The Nebraska Cornhuskers landed their man this offseason, luring Scott Frost away from UCF and to Lincoln — a homecoming of sorts for the former Nebraska quarterback.
However, contract details were unknown until recently, as Frost only signed a contract earlier this month after working on a memorandum of understanding prior to the official deal.
According to Omaha.com, Frost’s contract is for $5 million a year, and expires following the 2024 season:
After working for months off of a memorandum of understanding, Frost signed his contract for employment in mid-May, according to documents sent from Nebraska. NU President Hank Bounds signed the contract May 22, making it official.
Frost’s contract, which includes a $5 million salary, expires Dec. 31, 2024. Like his assistants, Frost was deemed a part-time employee by Nebraska through the Peach Bowl, where he coached Central Florida to an undefeated season. Also written into Frost’s contract is the $5 million salary pool for his 10 assistant coaches and head strength and conditioning coach Zach Duval.
If Frost leaves Nebraska before his contract is up, he’ll owe the school $2.5 million for each year remaining on the contract.
