Nevertheless, all of this was leaked while UCF is on the field competing in the AAC Championship Game, which it won 62-55 in dramatic fashion in double overtime against Memphis.

Frost, a native of Wood River, Neb., who quarterbacked NU to the 1997 national championship, had always been the clear No. 1 choice to replace former head coach Mike Riley even well before Riley was sacked.

While he's only been a head coach for two seasons, Frost has a wide range of coaching experience as an assistant, particularly his time at OR working under Chip Kelly and Mark Helfrich.

No one would be surprised if Scott Frost returned to Nebraska to take the Cornhuskers job. He took over a Knights team that didn't win a game in 2015 and went 6-7 and earned a bowl bid in 2016. "I truly believe that we have hired the premier young coach in the country and that exciting times lie ahead".

Some family members have denounced the navy's response to the sub's disappearance as well as the age and condition of the vessel. The search involving 13 countries will now focus on scouring the sea bed for the vessel, Balbi said.

Right now, the Knights are focused on taking care of business and winning a conference championship.

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. He's also a Nebraska native, from Wood River.

The new Husker coach also played six seasons in the National Football League for four different teams.

Now Frost returns to his alma mater charged with returning to prominence a program teetering on the edge of national relevancy. "I would not have the opportunity to be in this position without a lot of great people who have helped me throughout my career". Frost's success has him squarely in the sights of the Nebraska coaching search.
