Tramel: Josh Heupel & Scott Frost have eerily similar histories

Josh Heupel and Scott Frost have similar histories. Well, not so much similar as in almost identical.

OU hero Heupel is the new football coach at Tennessee, after a three-year run at Central Florida, where he succeeded, yes, Frost. My pal Jenni Carlson wrote about Heupel for the Thursday Oklahoman, which you can read here.

Frost left Orlando for his alma mater, Nebraska, and if Heupel has the same success at Tennessee as Frost has had in Lincoln, Heupel’s time in Knoxville will be more Rocky than Top.

The backgrounds of Frost and Heupel are stunningly akin.
