The Huskers have reportedly made it known that they want the former star quarterback.
Nebraska has reportedly made preliminary contact with Central Florida to let the program know of the Huskers’ interest in Scott Frost.
While Nebraska has yet to make a coaching change, Mike Riley’s future in Lincoln has basically already been decided, and Frost appears to be choice No. 1 for the Huskers’ program.
ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg said on The Bottom Line today that Nebraska officials have made it known that Frost is wanted.

Frost is currently leading Central Florida to an undefeated season, so any kind of move likely isn’t going to come until after the regular season. Nebraska’s new athletic director, Bill Moos, said today that Riley deserves to at least finish out the year.
Florida is also believed to have serious interest in Frost, who led Nebraska to a national title as a quarterback in 1997. The Gators are also reportedly looking at Chip Kelly and Dan Mullen, among others.
If you’re a Nebraska fan who wants to see Frost in Lincoln, I’d root for Kelly to get the nod in Gainesville.
