The Nebraska coaching search has really been going on all year and according to college football insider Bruce Feldman it might already be over.
The Cornhuskers fired head coach Mike Riley after the team finished with its worst record since 1961 and the attention has been on UCF head coach Scott Frost all season due to his undefeated regular season and explosive offense as well as his ties to Nebraska.
Frost has led the Knights to the AAC Championship Game against Memphis thanks to an offense that averages the most points per game at 48.3, almost 200 rushing yards and about 325 passing yards, which is good for the sixth-most total yards in the country.
Of course, most Nebraska people want Frost back because he’s proven himself as a Division-I coach, but also because it would be the ultimate story of the prodigal son returning. He led the Cornhuskers to the 1997 national title as quarterback and if he brought them back to prominence he would be the ultimate hero in Lincoln.
