As if it weren’t any more clear that Scott Frost is Nebraska’s No. 1 target to replace Mike Riley, this report on Football Scoop on Sunday figured to make things apparent.
Multiple sources tell FootballScoop Florida went strong on Scott Frost…with several sources over the past few days telling FootballScoop Florida officials felt, despite Frost’s obvious connections to Nebraska, that they would wind up securing Frost as their next head coach. While that still might happen, a source told FootballScoop last night, Tom Osborne called Frost yesterday and told him it was time to come home. We were told Frost understood the message.
“We were told Frost understood the message.”
That’s exactly what Nebraska fans want to hear. However, Osborne denied the report to Stephen M. Sipple of the Lincoln Journal Star.
Tom Osborne tells me he hasn't asked Scott Frost to "come home." Hasn't talked to Frost this weekend. But Osborne says he obviously would welcome Frost as Husker H.C. “Well, I hold Scott in high regard. He’s a great coach. I’d just leave it at that.”

Frost is still the coach at UCF and will be coaching the Knights in the AAC Championship Game on Saturday. It doesn’t look like the rumors will quiet down this week.
