The head coach of Central Florida and former Nebraska quarterback Scott Frost will return to his alma mater as the Cornhuskers named him to replace Mike Riley as the head coach.

Brett McMurphy first reported it while Scott Frost was coaching the Central Florida Knights in the American Athletic Conference Championship Game against Memphis at home, and they ended up winning that game 62-55 in double overtime to complete a 12-0 regular season. The details have been released as Frost has agreed to a seven year deal.

Frost led the Cornhuskers to a 13-0 season in his senior year in 1997 and a share of the national championship with Michigan. Now he returns to Nebraska to hopefully bring them success as they have not been able to win a conference title while in the Big Ten and only one division title since joining the conference.

UPDATE – With Scott Frost accepting the job at Nebraska, he has officially resigned as head coach at Central Florida. He did this hours after his win over Memphis in the AAC Championship Game.
