"They should give you time after the season to make decision, and they don't", Frost said.

"I don't see us going 12-0 next year, but I know he will get energy from the kids and get the program enthusiastic and hopefully just have a better season next year than we had this year", said husker fan Rick Sheehy.

"I am appreciative of the confidence (athletic director) Bill Moos and our University leadership have in me to lead this program".

Frost had plenty of thank-yous to hand out as he addressed the crowd at the news conference - a crowd made up largely of current and former members of the Husker football program.

"There was a formula that worked here for a long time and times have changed a little but some of those same things are what is going to make this work again".

Frost said the timing was right for him to return to his alma mater and he thinks the state is hungry for unity.

Moos said Frost was the only person he offered the job. Frost says he wants to put the muscle back in the walk-on program."This place needs that", he said. This season was fun. At Stanford he was coached by Hall of Famer Bill Walsh, and of course Tom Osborne at Nebraska. Frost was then drafted by the Jets and played five seasons in the National Football League with New York, Cleveland and Tampa Bay. His defense was third in the FCS in takeaways with 40 and ninth in scoring defense (17.7 points per game).

Most coaches are gone at this stage in the proceedings.

Several reports indicated that the move was imminent as Frost was coaching Central Florida to a win during the AAC conference championship game on Saturday.

Update: It was only a matter of time before Nebraska confirmed it had hired former quarterback Scott Frost as its new coach.

He inherited an 0-12 football team at the end of the 2015 season and quickly turned the program around, helping the Knights earn their first 11-0 regular season record in school history and a No. 14 ranking by the College Football Playoff committee - the highest mark by any Group of 5 school since the playoff system started in 2014.
