According to insider Brett McMurphy, the Cornhuskers agreed to a seven-year, $35 million deal with Frost, who just led Central Florida to a 62-55 win over Memphis in double-overtime in the AAC Championship game.
The AD said he did talk to other candidates and he had his people contact still more but he said, "I did not offer the job to anybody but Scott".
He fought back tears during the postgame press conference as they described what he meant to them.
Frost's statement ended with, "Go Big Red!" I love Orlando and no matter what I do, I'm going to retire here. After graduating from Nebraska in 1997 he played in the National Football League for seven seasons and held assistant coach positions at Nebraska, Kansas State, Northern Iowa and OR before taking over at Central Florida in 2016. They are expected to be invited to the prestigious Peach Bowl.
Athletic Director Bill Moos called Sunday a "celebration for the University of Nebraska and Husker football" as he introduced former Husker football standout Scott Frost as the new football coach. He had discussions last week with Tennessee about its head-coaching vacancy. 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.
White is facing a tight window to hire a new coach, with the first college football early signing period starting December 20. In 2015, the season before Frost took over, UCF finished with a record of 0-12.
Frost was unanimously voted the conference's coach of the year Wednesday for his efforts. Riley's Huskers made two bowl appearances and were 1-1 in those two games.

His zone-read offense helped make Hawaii native McKenzie Milton one of the most productive quarterbacks in the country. Griffin, whose left hand was amputated during his childhood, was buried low on the depth chart as a safety under previous coach George O'Leary. He also spent time at Northern Iowa as linebackers coach and defensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008.
He said, "We can get this entire state behind this football program". The players expressed excitement about Nebraska's future under Frost, and he shared those same feelings about his new team. Frost also leveraged his relationship with Nike executive to upgrade the school's uniforms, generating excitement among players and fans. Frost said he didn't think Osborne would have done that if he didn't honestly feel it was the best move for him.
"This is a tough business".
"I played here. I understand it", Frost said. We're undefeated. I'm from there.
"From afar it didn't look like the Nebraska that I knew". Frost led UCF to an 11-0 season, the only remaining ideal record in the FBS. The Knights advanced after beating the University of South Florida 49-42 last week.
