Nebraska Scott Frost and Bill Moos top quotes from press conference

Scott Frost hired as Nebraska's new head football coach

UCF is targeting former Texas A&M and Houston coach Kevin Sumlin to be its next coach, according to sources with knowledge of the search.

"I am thrilled that Scott is returning to his alma mater to lead the Husker football program", Nebraska athletic director Moos said in a statement. Even before Nebraska fired coach Mike Riley, there was a near universal feeling that the program would pursue Frost, who led UCF to a 12-0 regular season. Walters on Saturday was named the team's interim coach, although Frost still hopes to coach in the team's upcoming bowl game. When Frost was asked about the reports after the game, he would only say that he wanted to talk to his team first. Under Frost and new defensive coordinator Erik Chinander, Griffin was moved from safety to outside linebacker and become the AAC's 2016 defensive player of the year. The Golden Knights were 0-12 the year before Frost took over.

Moos said Frost is a natural fit at Nebraska and is well-prepared to lead the Husker program.

During just two seasons, Frost amassed a 17-7 record, qualified for two bowl appearances and hauled in the No. 2 and No. 1 recruiting classes in the American Athletic Conference in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

"It is a great honor and privilege to have the opportunity to return to Nebraska and to lead the Husker football program", Frost said.

"I played here. I understand it", Frost said. "I just want to see more heart on the field with the coaches and also maybe some better game management, just get back to traditional husker football", said Sandy McCorkindale the Cigarz Lounge owner. And this community is special and it gives me a lot of pride to know that we came in and righted the ship. "When you win a lot, people are interested in you". The players expressed excitement about Nebraska's future under Frost, and he shared those same feelings about his new team.

UCF freshman Gabe Davis discusses his early success with the Knights, who play for an AAC title Saturday.

"The staff I hired at UCF is a group of men that are unbelievable coaches and have unbelievable character, and if it wasn't that way we wouldn't hae been able to make the turn around we made".
