Scott Frost will return entire on-field assistant coaching staff for 2021
It looks like Scott Frost is not expecting any departures or changes to his on-field coaching staff for 2021.
According to Evan Bland with the Omaha World-Herald, Frost revealed in a Friday conversation that he is not making any changes to his staff. That includes retaining all 10 onfield assistants, a group Frost believes has done well in Lincoln:
In an hour-long conversation Friday with The World-Herald, NU coach Scott Frost said he is “absolutely” planning to continue with his same 10 on-field assistant coaches. Contract extensions are forthcoming for men he’s seen do a “great job” in recruiting and developing players during their time together in Lincoln and — in many cases — at UCF in 2016 and 2017.
During the conversation, Frost also indicated a desire to spend more personal time with quarterback Adrian Martinez. Frost still believes the quarterback has a chance to be on of the best in the B1G.
It is not necessarily surprising that Frost is sticking with his staff, but the Huskers undoubtedly need to begin turning things around. The team is still looking for its first winning season under Frost, going 12-20 in three seasons since he was hired.
In terms of recruiting, Nebraska’s 2021 class currently ranks fifth in the B1G and 20th nationally by 247 Sports. Hopefully that class can turn in some strong results on the field.
