Former UCF Coach Scott Frost Fired at Nebraska After 1-2 Start in Fifth Season as Head Coach

Frost had 16-31 overall record at Nebraska
(ESPN) – Nebraska fired football coach Scott Frost on Sunday, one day after a 45-42 home loss to Georgia Southern in what had become an untenable situation for the Huskers.
Nebraska (1-2) had been a three-touchdown favorite.
“Earlier today I met with Coach Frost and informed him we were making a change in the leadership of our football program, effective immediately. Scott has poured his heart and soul into the Nebraska Football program both as a quarterback and head coach, and I appreciate his work and dedication,” Nebraska vice chancellor for athletics Trev Alberts said in a statement.
Frost played at Nebraska from 1995-97, returning home to play for Tom Osborne after beginning his career at Stanford. In 1997, he helped the Huskers go 13-0 and win the national championship — becoming the first quarterback in school history to rush for more than 1,000 yards and pass for more than 1,000 yards in the same season. It would be the last national championship for Osborne and Nebraska.
Frost seemed like the perfect fit to restore Nebraska to glory after the Huskers fired Mike Riley in 2017. Frost was in his second year as UCF head coach, and in the middle of a historic 13-0 season in which the Knights self-declared a national championship and became one of the hottest coaching candidates in the country.
