Reaction: Scott Frost Introduced as Nebraska’s New Football Coach
What a difference three years makes.
After the 2014 college football season, the Nebraska Cornhuskers were enjoying modest success on the field, but were unhappy with the sometimes toxic culture of the program under then head coach Bo Pelini.
After Pelini was dismissed, the Huskers looked for a new coach to restore the program's integrity, while hopefully maintaining the nine and ten win seasons Nebraska fans had become accustomed to.
The program settled on Mike Riley, a coach who had a checkered past in the win column, but fit into the 'Midwest Nice' mold much better than his predecessor.
After three seasons where the victories weren't coming with any sort of regularity, Riley was shown the door, following the Huskers' first eight-loss in 60 years.
When it came to looking for Riley's replacement, new athletic director Bill Moos made it very clear from the beginning that he had his sights set on one coach to restore the luster to the now battered and bruised Nebraska football program - Central Florida's Scott Frost.
Not only is Frost one of the hottest coaches in the game right now, after leading the Knights to a 12-0 record this season, he's also a Husker at heart - born in Nebraska, and the starting quarterback for the Big Red's last National Championship team in 1997.
Sunday (December 3), Nebraska got their man when Frost was introduced as the 30th head coach in school history.
