What Others Are Saying...
"He's about as well-prepared as anybody could be. He's seen football from many different perspectives. One of the reasons he's the right choice is he understands some of the things you have to do at Nebraska that are unique — that you probably really only understand by having gone through them."
“Coach Frost is not only an incredible coach but more importantly he is an incredible individual. I am happy for him, and I am happy for Nebraska. The most important compliment I could pay to Scott is it would be an honor and there would be no hesitation to leave my child with him as a coach and mentor. Knowing him for the length of time that I have, it is easy to say that.”
“I’m beyond thrilled with the hire of Scott Frost as the head coach at the University of Nebraska! There were a handful of “elite” coaches out there this offseason and Scott was the best of them all! Being a teammate and friend of Scott it wasn’t surprising at all to see him take a winless UCF team to an undefeated regular season in a mere two years. I know that he will instill a work ethic and passion into our players that will make all Husker fans proud of this storied program! I’m confident that Scott will create an environment of accountability and in no time at all...The Red Sea and Memorial Stadium will be a place opponents wish not return! Welcome Home Coach Frost!”
The National Media Buzz...
“What a hire! Scott Frost’s experience as a championship quarterback in Lincoln combined with his impressive resume as both an assistant and head coach, make him the perfect fit to bring Nebraska back to national relevance!”
“Coach Frost is one of the best and most prepared coaches I’ve ever covered. His experience as a player and coach on both sides of the ball has uniquely prepared him to be as balanced a young coach as there is. His passion for his players is obvious and I’m confident that his return to Lincoln will be successful.”
“Scott Frost is the perfect hire. Strong Nebraska roots, national championship pedigree, but a thoroughly modern coach. I’ve watched him guide the Oregon offense and polish a Heisman Trophy winner and then turn winless into undefeated at UCF. Impressive every step. The Huskers have their man.”
"Even if you ignore the ties to the state and the program, Scott Frost is uniquely qualified to bring Nebraska football back onto the national stage. With college football’s most explosive offense, an ability to relate to student-athletes and that rare capacity to communicate a clear vision for his program that extends beyond Xs and Os, Frost is college football’s most impressive young coach and the right fit at the right time for the Cornhuskers. Nebraska should be excited about what the future holds."
