Nebraska names Frost as new head coach

Frost is looking at a seven-year deal that will pay about $35 million, USA TODAY Sports reported. But then-athletic director Shawn Eichorst made a surprise hire, bringing in Riley from Oregon State. Frost's three predecessors had no ties to Nebraska, and his track record at OR and UCF has fans confident he is the right man to return the Huskers to their place in the college football hierarchy.

UCF HC Scott Frost has resigned from his position and will take the head-coaching post at Nebraska. In 2015, the season before Frost took over, UCF finished with a record of 0-12.

Meanwhile, Frost excelled the last two years at UCF in his first head coaching job. Nebraska has plenty of work to do as an offensive outfit, but Frost has already proven capable of turning a program around and the overwhelming optimism regarding his hire in Lincoln is completely justified.

As for his playing career, Frost went 24-2 as a two-year starter for Nebraska at quarterback and joined the ranks of legendary Huskers when he guided NU to the 1997 national title.

It only seems like yesterday that Huawei partnered with Flex to manufacture Huawei Honor phones first week of October, 2016. The newest flagship handset, Honor V10 , boasts a powerful design and inner specs that rival this year's premium phones.

He then went to OR to work as receivers coach under Kelly, and when Helfrich took over as head coach in 2013, he appointed Frost as his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

A finalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award as a senior who became just the 10th player in college football history to rush and pass for more than 1,000 yards in a season, Frost was drafted by the New Jets with the 67th overall pick in the third round of the 1998 NFL Draft.

Now Frost returns to his alma mater charged with returning to prominence a program teetering on the edge of national relevancy. "When you win a lot, people are interested in you". Frost's success has him squarely in the sights of the Nebraska coaching search. "I have been fortunate to be at a wonderful school the last two years, but Nebraska is a special place with a storied tradition and a fan base which is second to none".
