Scott Frost is bringing some hardware to Lincoln.
The new Nebraska head coach was named the 2017 Home Depot Coach of the Year for leading UCF to an undefeated season and an AAC Championship. The announcement was made Wednesday but Frost will be presented with the award during the Home Depot College Football Awards Show on Thursday, which will air on ESPN.
A well-deserved honor. 🙌
Your Home Depot Coach of the Year, Scott Frost.

UCF finished the season 12-0 and defeated Memphis 62-55 in the AAC Championship Game last Saturday. He was officially introduced as the Huskers head coach the next day.
This past season, Frost coached the most prolific offense in college football as the Knights averaged 49.4 points and 540.4 yards per game this season. UCF earned a bid in a New Year’s Six bowl and will play No. 7 Auburn in the Peach Bowl.
Yeah, it’s been a hectic week for Frost, but it’s been nothing but positives for the new Nebraska head coach.
