A day after winning the American Athletic Conference championship, Scott Frost was introduced as the new head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers at his first official press conference as a member of the Nebraska program. As you might expect, Frost is widely being hailed as a “home run” hire for Nebraska, and he scored his first victory at Nebraska with a genuine and heartfelt and refreshing press conference in front of the Nebraska media.
Asked how he would modify his offensive system to fit in the Big Ten, Frost offered a response that won the room over to a round of applause.
“I’m hoping the Big Ten is going to have to modify their system to us,” Frost replied. The room burst into applause for a few moments.
Frost confirmed his intention to coach UCF in the bowl game for the undefeated Knights, saying he felt it was his duty to give UCF the best possible chance to end the season with a win after going through so much with his now previous employer. Frost also suggested he hopes most of his UCF staff comes with him to Lincoln, although the exact staff will be determined. With early signing now in play in college football, Frost understands there is a need to focus on recruiting in a short period of time. Moving on from UCF as quickly as possible would have some benefits, but Frost’s commitment to finishing the job at UCF could end up paying off for his job at Nebraska as well.
