Nevertheless, all of this was leaked while UCF is on the field competing in the AAC Championship Game, which it won 62-55 in dramatic fashion in double overtime against Memphis.

When asked about interest from Nebraska, Frost replied, "I'd be hurt if Nebraska wasn't interested in me".

Nebraska is reportedly hiring Central Florida head coach Scott Frost as the new leader of their program.

Frost played with Stanford for two years before transferring to Nebraska where he was Cornhuskers' quarterback in 1996 and 1997.

After inheriting a program that finished 0-12 the previous year in 2015, Frost guided the Knights to a 6-7 mark a trip to the Cure Bowl in 2016 in his first season as a head coach. At 10-1, Memphis could have been in position to sneak into the College Football Playoff if not for a loss to the Knights earlier in the season.

While he's only been a head coach for two seasons, Frost has a wide range of coaching experience as an assistant, particularly his time at OR working under Chip Kelly and Mark Helfrich.

Frost's coaching reputation grew as an OR assistant, first under Chip Kelly and then as offensive coordinator after Kelly's departure.
