For at least a little, Nebraska coach Scott Frost and former coaching great Paul “Bear” Bryant will be named in the same sentence.
Frost won the Coach of the Year Award dedicated to Bryant’s namesake on Wednesday night, adding to the accolades he’s racked up after leading UCF to an undefeated season and a win over Auburn in the Peach Bowl.
In our final stop, it’s another win for @coach_frost, the Bear Bryant Coach of the Year Award. Thank you to the American Heart Association, what a wonderful event. @HuskerFBNation #GBR ❄️🔴🌽 pic.twitter.com/Nj2IC6A9Qf

On Tuesday, Frost was named the American Football Coaches Association Coach of the Year, adding to an already solid list.
The coach was also named the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award on Saturday in Atlanta and has been tabbed as the Associated Press and Home Depot Coach of the Year this season.
Frost led the Knights to an American Athletic Conference title and last week, the school claimed a national championship after going undefeated and not making the College Football Playoff.
