As Nebraska attempts to keep its recruiting class in tact, it is reportedly telling recruits that Scott Frost is on his way, and has most of his staff set.
Frost is currently coaching his UCF Knights in the AAC Championship Game against Memphis.
The 11-0 Knights are currently sitting in pole position to grab the Group of Five New Year’s Six bowl bid, though they trail Memphis 31-24 at the half of a wild game.
Win or lose, it sounds like this is probably his last game with the school. After a flirtation with Florida, it became pretty clear that he is the next head coach at his alma mater Nebraska, and Nebraska is now reportedly telling recruits as much.

ESPN’s Matt Schick backs that up, saying that the transition will be very smooth.
More than likely there’s been an agreement between Scott Frost and Nebraska for the past couple of weeks. This will be as smooth a coaching change as you will find.

If Frost already has the majority of a staff ready to take over at Nebraska, that certainly seems to be the case.
