Frost joined Oregon's coaching staff as wide receivers coach in 2009 under head coach Chip Kelly.
The reports came shortly after Central Florida defeated Memphis 62-55 in double overtime to win the American Athletic Conference championship to finish the season a flawless 12-0. When he initially took over the Knights in the winter of 2015, they were coming off an 0-12 season. I am truly humbled to be here. Frost, an alumni of Nebraska, has brought UCF to the precipice of a ideal season pending the result of Saturday's championship game.
Despite being a sought-after coaching candidate, Frost wanted to make sure he was going to have a chance to build a successful program.
Success has followed Frost throughout both his coaching and playing career.
Frost has been in coaching since 2007, when he was hired by Northern Iowa as linebackers coach. In his nine years as a full-time assistant coach, Frost was associated with teams that posted a 103-18 record, won six conference titles and played in two national championship games.
Frost played with Stanford for two years before transferring to Nebraska where he was Cornhuskers' quarterback in 1996 and 1997.
The 42-year-old led the Huskers to a share of the National Championship in 1997 with a 42-17 victory over Peyton Manning and the Tennessee Volunteers in the Orange Bowl.
Frost was born in Wood River, Nebraska and attended Wood River high school from 1989 to 1993.
The new Husker coach also played six seasons in the National Football League for four different teams. We will carry the press conference live on our website.
