It was an incredibly crazy weekend for Scott Frost. On Saturday, he led UCF to a perfect 12-0 record and an American Athletic Conference title win. On Sunday, he was introduced as the head coach at Nebraska.
The weekend got even busier, because shortly after his press conference in Lincoln, Frost sat down with Rick Pizzo of Big Ten Network to talk about his time at UCF, the opportunity at Nebraska and how he wants to restore pride, tradition and togetherness in the Huskers football program.
“I think the life perspective is what made it really hard (to leave UCF),” Frost said. “My wife was comfortable there, just having a baby. I loved Orlando and UCF and I always will. At the end of the day (Nebraska) is where I want to be because this program should be competing at the highest level. I think the time to come back and try to help it get back to that place.”
Frost has spent the last two seasons at UCF, tallying an 18-7 record. He’s been was the top — and really the only — candidate in connection with the Nebraska job after Mike Riley was fired at the conclusion of the season.
