The Huskers would love to hire this former Nebraska star.
It is no secret that if Nebraska parts ways with head coach Mike Riley, former Nebraska quarterback Scott Frost would be the coach the Huskers would covet.
The current UCF head coach, Frost has established himself as a hot commodity on the coaching market. He will draw attention from plenty of programs, but what if his alma mater makes him the proverbial offer he can’t refuse.
USA Today’s Dan Wolken said today on Twitter that he could see Nebraska making Frost one of the top “6-7” highest-paid coaches in the country.
I would not be surprised if Nebraska’s offer to Frost would immediately put him in the top 6-7 of coaching salaries.

According to the USA Today coaching salary database, the sixth and seventh-highest paid coaches in the country (FSU’s Jimbo Fisher and Stanford’s David Shaw) make around $5.7 million per year. That is some serious cash.
Yesterday, Nebraska AD Bill Moos addressed Riley’s status, saying the embattled head coach “deserves to finish the 2017 season.”
