When Scott Frost accepted the head coaching job at Nebraska, he made it pretty clear that his entire coaching staff was coming with him. He believed that a group that brought incredible success to UCF could do the same thing in Lincoln.

But not every coach has the same mindset as Frost. Several coaches leave behind their staff when accepting a new position, essentially leaving them in the dust to be fired by the administration. The Nebraska head coach has a hard time wrapping his head around that mindset.

“That’s not the right thing to do in my eyes,” Frost told ESPN reporter Mitch Sherman. “The right thing to do was to give every one of my coaches an opportunity to come. If they’re good enough to take an 0-12 program to 12-0 in two years, they’re good enough to coach anywhere. Because what they’ve accomplished at UCF is next to impossible.”

UCF had a magnificent turnaround, going undefeated, winning the American Athletic Conference and earning a bid to the Peach Bowl to play Auburn. The Knights also finished the year as the most prolific scoring offense in all of college football.

For those accomplishments, Frost has raked in multiple Coach of the Year awards. But he’s made it clear that his staff is as much responsible for those awards as he is.

All of Frost’s UCF staff will be joining him in Lincoln, something he said was “flattering.”
