Many Florida fans wanted UCF coach Scott Frost to be their next coach, and Tennessee fans dreamed he’d consider moving to Knoxville, but in the end, most everyone expected the second-year coach of the Knights to go to Nebraska.
After all, he was a star quarterback there and the firing of Mike Riley after the regular season seemed like a sign that it was meant to be.
On Saturday, during Frost’s appearance in the AAC Championship Game against Memphis, college football insider Brett McMurphy reported that Frost has an agreement with Nebraska on a 7-year, $35 million contract.
But perhaps the more interesting part of that report is that Frost has been experiencing some “serious cold feet & remorse.”

It is clear that Frost is no longer a candidate for any SEC coaching vacancies, and Gators fans seem to be pretty happy with new coach Dan Mullen, but this sentiment could produce a little more drama for an already wild coaching carousel. It also is worth noting that Florida State recently had its job open up when Jimbo Fisher resigned on Friday to take the job at Texas A&M.
