Report: Primary Florida target Scott Frost already a 'done deal' to Nebraska
As Florida reportedly moved away from Chip Kelly and zeroed in on Central Florida coach Scott Frost, a report came out Friday night that the Nebraska alum was already headed to lead the Cornhuskers.
ESPN reported earlier Friday that Florida is expected to meet with Frost this weekend.
Should the Cornhuskers fire Mike Riley, a report from Lars Anderson suggests they would turn to Frost, who is in his second season at UCF, which is ranked No. 15 in the most recent College Football Playoff rankings. The Knights are 11-0 after a 49-42 win over South Florida on Friday.
Entering that game, the Knights had the nation’s top scoring offense, averaging 48.2 points per game.
In the mean time, before Frost can truly focus on job prospects, the Knights will host Memphis Dec. 2 in the American Athletic Conference’s title game. They are also in good shape for a second New Year’s bowl in five seasons.
Anderson has been reporting that Frost to Nebraska is likely, and he’s standing by that report even after the Gators are expected to zero in on Frost.
I've heard from a source that I trust that Scott Frost to Nebraska is a done deal.
