UCF is targeting former Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin to be its next head coach, according to reports. "We're going to put a product on that field this state can be proud of". "But that's what makes this place great is the passion people have for it". Frost said he was excited to return to his alma mater to coach in the press release.
UCF Athletic Director Danny White said Saturday that Frost still planned to coach the Knights in the upcoming bowl game New Year's Day.
"From afar it didn't look like the Nebraska that I knew". He said he chose the Knights because it was an ideal place where he knew he could succeed. "Certainly a celebration of bringing one of our own home, a favorite son".
Frost said he never expected a 12-0 season.
After playing two years at Stanford, Frost transferred to NU, serving as scout team quarterback on the 1995 national title team. At UCF, Frost amassed a record of 18-7, including an undefeated regular season. He also plans to give Frost enough time to turn things around in Lincoln. Frost, one of the hottest offensive minds in all the land, has accepted a deal with Nebraska worth a reported seven years, $35 million.
"I'm thrilled to be back because I think the time is right for this, and it wasn't always that way". "He, like I, believes there's no quick fixes".
It's official; Frost coming back to Nebraska
Frost later added, "I'm going to talk to the team first".
He said, "We can get this entire state behind this football program".
Frost will be the first person since Frank Solich to both play and coach at Nebraska.
"I saw a lot of fire in their eyes", Frost said. "I've seen it happen before, and I know it can happen here". And then UCF hit the afterburners for the current campaign - Frost's crew rolled to an 12-0 record, capped off with Saturday's wild shootout win over Memphis in the AAC Championship Game. His spread, up-tempo offense may be different than what the Big Ten has seen before - and Frost plans to make it work here.
