Ever since he became the head coach of the University of Nebraska in 2015, Mike Riley has not been able to create a strong team that many Husker fans were expecting. After the very catastrophic 2017 season the athletic department decided that it was time for a coaching change. Most Husker fans knew that a new coach could be the answer to the program’s issues. On December 2, 2017, head coach of at University of Central Florida, and former Husker Scott Frost, accepted the coaching position for his former team. Frost signed a 7-year, $35 million contract.  

Those who have been following the past few seasons for UCF will recall the excellent improvement that Frost was able to bring to the team. In the 2017 season alone, Frost was able to lead the team to an 8-0 record and also a conference championship.  

Scott Frost is definitely an impressive and successful coach. He was also a very successful player during his time with UNL. Frost was the starting quarterback at UNL for two seasons. He also led the Huskers to a national championship in 1997.  During his time at UNL, Frost played under, hall of fame coach, Tom Osborne. Loyal Husker fans will know the significance of Osborne’s coaching at UNL. Frost has a deep history and connection with the school and the athletic department at UNL. Because of these connections, many fans think Frost is the right choice. Frost went on to play six seasons in the NFL, in which he played for the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

Looking at these accomplishments, it is quite clear that Frost is qualified and experienced in the area of football. Frost’s accomplishments are what drew the attention of so many Husker fans and the athletic department. Most Husker fans look to next season with high hopes and expectations. Frost seems like the right person to turn the struggling football program around. However, the coach is only half of the equation. Fans will have to wait until next season to see how the players adapt to the new leadership and whether or not their cooperation will lead to wins on the field next year.
