After Chip Kelly, UCF coach Scott Frost was the Florida Gators’ top target in their coaching search this offseason.
However, Frost said no to the Gators and instead accepted the job at Nebraska, his alma mater.
On Tuesday, Nebraska TE coach Sean Beckton explained why Frost turned down the Gators, saying Florida wouldn’t let him bring his entire coaching staff with him:
Sean Beckton says Florida asked Scott Frost to be head coach. But Florida would not allow him to bring all his staff, so Frost said no. #Huskers

Frost brought most of his staff with him to Nebraska, and that was apparently enough to convince him to make the move from UCF.
The Gators settled on Dan Mullen instead, and it appears both schools are happy with their decisions.
