  • Scott Frost hired as Nebraska's new head football coach

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.

While fans are excited to have frost as football coach they have high expectations.

"I don't see us going 12-0 next year, but I know he will get energy from the kids and get the program enthusiastic and hopefully just have a better season next year than we had this year", said husker fan Rick Sheehy.

"I am thrilled that [Frost] is returning to his alma mater to lead the Husker football program", Moos said.

"There was a formula that worked here for a long time and times have changed a little but some of those same things are what is going to make this work again".

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

Arrest made in connection to missing Onslow County girl
Kimrey removed the girl's body from the place where she died and knew her death was not natural, according to arrest warrants. The FBI said because of evidence gathered, it believes that Mariah is dead but no body has been recovered.

"What I felt that Scott wanted the most was enough time to get this done right", Moos said.

Moos said Frost was the only person he offered the job. This season was fun.

Frost will be the first person since Frank Solich to both play and coach at Nebraska. At Stanford he was coached by Hall of Famer Bill Walsh, and of course Tom Osborne at Nebraska.

1998-2003 - drafted in the third round of the NFL Draft by the New York Jets in 1998, played (mostly safety) for the Jets, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Frost joined Oregon's coaching staff as wide receivers coach in 2009 under head coach Chip Kelly. Under Frost and new defensive coordinator Erik Chinander, Griffin was moved from safety to outside linebacker and become the AAC's 2016 defensive player of the year. Frost also said "we still have some talking to do" as it relates to him returning to UCF to coach the Knights' bowl game. The Knights were 0-12 the year before, but finished 6-6 his first season and went to a bowl game.

The Huskers are coming off their worst season in a half-century, but Frost said he believes the leadership is in place to bring glory back to Nebraska.
