Coach Scott Frost: 'When it came down to it, this is home'

Scott Frost hired as Nebraska's new head football coach

While Scott Frost's name has been tossed around as a Husker candidate for a good part of the season he said he didn't make the decision to accept the Nebraska offer until last week. "I have been fortunate to be at a wonderful school the last two years, but Nebraska is a special place with a storied tradition and a fan base which is second to none".

And he said the time to do that is right.

"I would not have the opportunity to be in this position without a lot of great people who have helped me throughout my career", he said. Specifically, I would like to thank Coach Osborne who has played such an integral role in my life over the past two decades, both on and off the field.

Frost led the Knights to a ideal regular season prior to winning the championship title Saturday.

Frost's statement ended with, "Go Big Red!" "These things happen at the wrong time".

Frost later added, "I'm going to talk to the team first". This season was fun. The players expressed excitement about Nebraska's future under Frost, and he shared those same feelings about his new team.

UCF is also expected to consider offensive coordinator Troy Walters for its coaching vacancy, according to sources. His defense was third in the FCS in takeaways with 40 and ninth in scoring defense (17.7 points per game).

In addition to head coaching, Frost spent time at OR as wide receivers coach from 2009-13 before being promoted to offensive coordinator from 2013-15.

Most coaches are gone at this stage in the proceedings. Frost also said "we still have some talking to do" as it relates to him returning to UCF to coach the Knights' bowl game.

He inherited an 0-12 football team at the end of the 2015 season and quickly turned the program around, helping the Knights earn their first 11-0 regular season record in school history and a No. 14 ranking by the College Football Playoff committee - the highest mark by any Group of 5 school since the playoff system started in 2014.

Update: It was only a matter of time before Nebraska confirmed it had hired former quarterback Scott Frost as its new coach.
