Nebraska reportedly hires UCF's Scott Frost as new head coach

Cigarz Lounge in the Haymarket hosted a Frost watch party to celebrate Scott Frost's new position as Nebraska's head football coach. Unfortunately for them, star coach Frost is leaving to become the next head coach at Nebraska, which has created a vacancy.

The reports came shortly after Central Florida defeated Memphis 62-55 in double overtime to win the American Athletic Conference championship to finish the season a flawless 12-0.

Frost met with the team before the news conference and said, "I saw a lot of fire in their eyes".

Frost returns to Nebraska after serving as head coach at the University of Central Florida for two years. Frost says he wants to put the muscle back in the walk-on program."This place needs that", he said.

He wanted his players to enjoy their moment in the championship spotlight and waited until 30 minutes after his postgame press conference to tell the Knights he accepted the Nebraska job. Two sources close to the program told the Orlando Sentinel White hired Parker Executive Search, the same company the school used to identify Frost as a candidate, as early as last week when it was clear Frost would accept Nebraska's offer.

CBS Tampa first reported UCF's interest in Sumlin and that the two sides are already negotiating a deal. He also spent time at Northern Iowa as linebackers coach and defensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008. The Knights were 0-12 the year before, but finished 6-6 his first season and went to a bowl game.

"It is a great honor and privilege to have the opportunity to return to Nebraska and to lead the Husker football program", Frost said.

Asked how he would modify his system for the Big TEN, Frost said, "I'm hoping the Big TEN has to modify their system for us". "When you win a lot, people are interested in you".

Frost played for and coached under some of the top coaches around. UCF won the game at the conference title 62-55.

UCF coach Scott Frost chats with reporters about Nebraska coaching rumors.

"The staff I hired at UCF is a group of men that are unbelievable coaches and have unbelievable character, and if it wasn't that way we wouldn't hae been able to make the turn around we made".
