Scott Frost has a long connection with the Nebraska Cornhuskers, both as a coach and as a player. Fans admire his football obsession and his efforts to help the team to succeed. Unfortunately, the Nebraska Cornhuskers fired coach Scott Frost following a 1-2 start to the season.
Nebraska Cornhuskers dismissed coach Scott Frost on Sunday, one day after a 45-42 home loss to Georgia Southern, putting the Huskers in an untenable scenario. Nebraska (1-2) was a three-touchdown underdog. Trev Alberts, Nebraska’s vice chancellor for athletics, said in a statement about the change.
“Earlier today I met with Coach Frost and informed him we were making a change in the leadership of our football program, effective immediately. Scott has poured his heart and soul into the Nebraska Football program both as a quarterback and head coach, and I appreciate his work and dedication.”
Mickey Joseph, the team’s associate head coach, will take over for the rest of the season. On Saturday, Nebraska will host Oklahoma. Frost returned home to coach his alma mater in 2018 after two seasons at UCF, including an undefeated season in 2017.
Frost, on the other hand, was unable to get the Huskers rolling. Alberts surprised everyone in November when he declared that he would bring back Frost after a 3-9 season. Frost sacked four offensive assistants, reduced his salary from $5 million to $4 million, and agreed to reduce his buyout from $15 million to $7.5 million on October 1st.
There was no immediate word of a negotiated settlement on Sunday. Nebraska started the season with a heartbreaking loss to Northwestern after Alberts gave him one more chance to turn around the program. The loss to Georgia Southern exacerbated the situation.
Frost’s career at Nebraska ended with a 16-31 record. What are your thoughts on the changes brought about by Nebraska? Let us know in the comments. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more information.
