WATCH: Scott Frost talks about getting Nebraska back to Tom Osborne levels of success on 'The Jim Rome Show'
Nebraska head coach Scott Frost called into “The Jim Rome Show” Tuesday to talk about the state of the Nebraska program, getting the Cornhuskers back to Tom Osborne-era levels of success and some of things going on at other Big Ten programs among other topics.
Huskers fans are hoping that Frost, who played at Nebraska under Osborne, can lead the team back to its former status as a powerhouse and a consistent national championship contender.
Frost acknowledged that level of success has been challenging for any program to achieve.
“The run of success Coach Osborne had is unprecedented,” Frost told Rome. “I don’t how many times it has been duplicated, if any. We’re going to do our best to get back there.”
But Frost is confident he has what he needs to turn the Husker program around.
“We got all the resources that we need to try to build to that again,” Frost said. “It’s not going to happen overnight, but I really like where we’re heading.”
Osborne’s style of coaching is a huge influence on Frost. Cornhuskers fans can know it is highly unlikely that Frost and his staff will ever be accused of running a “toxic program” like Maryland.
“I know, at Nebraska, we’re never going to swear at kids and MF kids,” Frost said.
“Learning from Coach Osborne here, I was able to see first hand how loving players, encouraging them and teaching them can get as much done as any other way. That’s going to always be the mindset as long as I’m here.”
More from the interview, in which Frost shares what progress he has already seen in the few months as coach as well as what it’s like to have Osborne around the program, can be heard in the video clips below.
