Nebraska lands UCF's Frost as head coach

(TSX / STATS) -- Scott Frost, a former Nebraska quarterback who coached Central Florida to a 12-0 record and an American Athletic Conference championship, will be Nebraska's new head coach, the school announced Saturday.

The announcement came a few minutes after No. 14 Central Florida completed a 62-55, double-overtime victory over No. 20 Memphis in the AAC title game.

Frost agreed to a seven-year, $35 million contract, according to the Omaha World-Herald, and that would make him the highest paid Cornhuskers coach in history and one of the nation's top 15 highest-paid college football coaches.
