Frost and his staff will coach the Golden Knights in their bowl game - likely the January 1 Peach Bowl - even as several assistants, including future Husker defensive coordinator Erik Chinander, follow Frost to Nebraska. "UCF, Orlando is an unbelievable place with unlimited potential".

Frost played for and coached under some of the top coaches around. He will also be bringing several members of his coaching staff from UCF with him including his defensive coordinator Erik Chinander. The Knights were 0-12 the year before, but finished 6-6 his first season and went to a bowl game.

Fans played husker trivia, had celebratory drinks and cigars, and cheered when Frost arrived at the podium.

Frost, who previously worked as Oregon's offensive coordinator, passed on other opportunities before taking his first head coaching job at UCF. Frost said he didn't think Osborne would have done that if he didn't honestly feel it was the best move for him. It's also a very rewarding business when it's done the right way.

When asked about interest from Nebraska, Frost replied, "I'd be hurt if Nebraska wasn't interested in me".

"When I walked into that weight room and saw all those players there, it really made me excited about the fact that we can get this entire state behind this football program".

"From afar it didn't look like the Nebraska that I knew". "When you win a lot, people are interested in you". Cigarz Lounge in the Haymarket hosted a Frost watch party to celebrate Scott Frost's new position as Nebraska's head football coach. The Huskers have not won a conference championship in football since 1999 and have not contended for a national title since the early 2000s. Even before Nebraska fired coach Mike Riley, there was a near universal feeling that the program would pursue Frost, who led UCF to a 12-0 regular season. The Knights advanced after beating the University of South Florida 49-42 last week.
