LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska football coach Scott Frost is under NCAA investigation, according to a report Wednesday by Action Network.
The article claims the football program and Frost are facing allegations of improper use of analysts and consultants during practices and games.
According to the story Frost has retained legal counsel and been interviewed by the NCAA. Current and former staff members, along with players and administrators, have been interviewed, as well.
The two primary allegations center on work done by Jonathan Rutledge — who, as an analyst, was not allowed to direct players in a practice setting — and whether NU players worked out last summer under the direction of the Huskers' strength and conditioning staff. Action Network said the NCAA has video footage of "documenting the impermissible use of analysts and consultants Nebraska A.D. Trev Alberts said he was “aware” of the report and “working” on a response.
Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos brought in Huskers alum Scott Frost at the end of his undefeated season at UCF to lead the football program.
Moos, who joined the school in 2017, announced his retirement back in June.
