Big Ten

Scott Frost Out at Nebraska

Nebraska coach Scott Frost.

Nebraska has fired coach Scott Frost three games into his fifth season at his alma mater.

Frost finishes his Nebraska run with a 16-31 overall record and 10-26 mark in the Big Ten.

The final nail on the coffin was Nebraska’s loss 45-42 loss to Georgia State Saturday night in Lincoln.

The once-vaunted “blackshirts” defense allowed 642 yards.

Frost came to Nebraska after a much more successful head coaching run at Central Florida. He left UCF after his teams posted a 19-7 record over two seasons. Frost’s 2017 team finished 13-0 and beat Auburn in the Peach Bowl.

After that, Frost returned to the school that he quarterbacked to a co-National championship in 1997.

In Frost’s first year as head coach, he went 4-8. The next season, Nebraska improved ever so slightly to 5-7 and then went 3-5 in the pandemic-themed 2020 campaign.

The 2021 season was legendary for all the wrong reasons. Despite competing in every single game, the Huskers finished 3-9, with eight losses coming by one score.

Nebraska started 2022 with a loss to Northwestern in a Week 0 contest in Ireland. After an un-convincing 38-17 win over North Dakota, the Georgia Southern loss proved to be the end of the road.

Frost won his only meeting with James Franklin, however. The Huskers beat Penn State, 30-23 in 2020 at Memorial Stadium.

Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts’s statement said that he met with Frost Sunday and informed him of the change.

”After a disappointing start to our season,” the statement read, “I decided the best path forward for our program was the make a change in our head coaching position.”

The statement finished by saying that Nebraska associate head coach Mickey Joseph will take over.
