From Dennis Dodd’s terrific profile of first-year Central Florida coach Scott Frost at CBS comes an interesting quote from the former Nebraska quarterback on his alma mater.
One of the hottest names in coaching after spending the past seven years building Oregon’s high-powered offense, Frost took the questions about him using the job at UCF as a stepping stone head-on.

Mike Riley, the coach Nebraska did call in Oregon (Corvallis, not Eugene), and his team are due at Oregon on Sept. 17. Meanwhile, Frost seems content attempting to build “Oregon East” in Orlando.
Scott played quarterback at Nebraska in 1996 and 1997, compiling a 24-2 record while winning the Johnny Unitas Award as the nation’s best senior signal caller.
