LINCOLN, Neb. – At the University of Central Florida, Scott Frost built the nation’s number one scoring offense while leading the Knights to an undefeated record and conference championship. His spread, up-tempo offense may be different than what the Big Ten has seen before — and Frost plans to make it work at the University of Nebraska.
“I’m hoping the Big Ten has to modify their system for us.”
Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos introduced Frost as the Huskers’ 33rd football coach in program history on Sunday afternoon. Moos said Frost was the only person he offered the job.
Frost says his first priority at Nebraska will be recruiting. “Boots are already on the ground” getting out to see recruits, introducing themselves and telling them what they plan to do at NU. He credited the former coaching staff for laying a solid foundation in recruiting.
However, he says he is looking forward to growing the walk-on program and make it what it was before.
“When I was growing up, every kid in the state of Nebraska dreamed about running out here on this stadium, on this field, wearing a red “N” on their helmet. There’s too many kids from this state right now playing at other schools and we’re going to do everything we can to make sure those kids are here.”
Frost told current players they are going to practice hard and fast, and it’ll be difficult, but they’re going to have more fun than they’ve ever had before. Once you get the unity, togetherness, and you put in the work, success follows, according to Frost.
