Multiple reports are out saying that UCF head coach Scott Frost has accepted the head coaching job at Nebraska. The story came out during the 4th quarter of the AAC championship game, a game the Knights would win 62-55 in double OT.

When asked by Todd McShay about these reports, Scott Frost said “I’m going to go celebrate with my team”

A non comital yet non denial by Frost, who refused to answer questions all week leading up to the AAC Championship Game.

What a wild game in Orlando with the Knights winning 62-55 in dramatic fashion in double overtime. The back and forth affair was the highest scoring conference title game in history and not just AAC history, all conference history. The teams combined for a staggering 1479 total yards.

UCF QB McKenzie Milton would toss for 494 yards and 5 TDs, he also had a rushing TD.

Frost who played his college ball at Nebraska has been rumored to be the next coach in Lincoln for several weeks. In fact his name was starting to pop up even before Nebraska fired Mike Riley. With the impressive season, Scott Frost had quickly became the hottest young coach in the country. Now he’s heading back to Nebraska to turn that program around.

Born in the Nation’s Capital, Washington D.C., Ari Russell watched the rise of the 1980’s Miami Hurricanes and knew that he had to be part of the “U” someday. After graduating from Coral Gables, Ari rose through the ranks of the former XM Satellite Radio and then Sirius/XM as college football executive producer. He later spent 2 seasons as the publisher of the website “Beyond U Sports” focusing on major college football/basketball. Ari brings a great perspective on everything Miami, including the Dolphins to F.F.I.

    Certainly wouldn’t be a surprise if he ends up there. Just pointing out it is not necessarily a better opportunity. If Frost opts to go back home, it would make sense as coaching decisions tend to be very personal.
