The Nebraska Cornhuskers have been targeting UCF head coach and Nebraska alum Scott Frost to be their next head coach once they fire current head man Mike Riley (as expected), and the move of Frost to the Huskers is reportedly a "done deal," according to Bleacher Report's Lars Anderson.
I've heard from a source that I trust that Scott Frost to Nebraska is a done deal.— Lars Anderson (@LarsAnderson71) November 25, 2017
The rumors surrounding Mike Riley's future as head coach of the Huskers started when the school fired athletic director Shawn Eichorst in September citing a lack of on-field success (Nebraska went 4-8 this year and are 18-19 under Riley). That seemed to put the nail in the coffin for Riley, though school officials remained adamant that they wouldn't make a decision on Riley's future until after the season - but they do plan to fire him.

Frost has led the Knights to a perfect 11-0 regular season record and a top 15 ranking.
The former Nebraska quarterback has been the coach most linked to the Huskers head job, and they're reportedly ready to offer him a seven-year, $35 million deal. It remains to be seen if that's the deal the two sides agreed to.
Florida also has Frost as their top option in their coaching search after eliminating Chip Kelly as a candidate.Back to the Nebraska Cornhuskers Newsfeed
