Report: Nebraska, Scott Frost under investigation for NCAA violations
Nebraska’s football program and head coach Scott Frost are reportedly under investigation for NCAA violations, according to a report from Brett McMurphy at Action Network.
Per the report, the program is under investigation for improper use of analysts and consultants during practices and games. The schools has “significant video footage,” confirming that those violations occurred in the presence of Frost and other members of the football staff.
Allegations of the improper use of analysts date back 12 months. Frost has obtained legal counsel and the NCAA has reportedly interviewed the head coach and multiple staff members.
Nebraska also allegedly relocated its strength workouts to an undisclosed location to avoid the school knowing about it during the pandemic. That would be another NCAA violation based on the policies implemented during the last year, but it’s unclear if the Huskers are currently under investigation for that.
It’s unclear what penalties would be enacted if the allegations are found to be true. However, McMurphy cited a source saying that Frost could face a suspension and miss time during the 2021 season.
