UCF will be heading to a New Year’s Six bowl, and Scott Frost will see the Knights through the end of the season.
As expected, Frost is officially the next head coach at Nebraska, his alma mater. The school officially announced the hire after UCF captured the AAC Championship in a wild 62-55 double overtime game.
Many teams that lose their coaches are bitter about it, but it seems like Frost and UCF handled the situation very well.
After the announcement was made, UCF congratulated Frost on his new job.
We sent him out with a 🏆
Good luck back home, Coach. pic.twitter.com/ivcqXm7sJr

The undefeated Knights will have a shot at proving that they belong against one of the other teams that missed out on this year’s crazy College Football Playoff field, and they’ll have their coach on the sideline for the occasion. It is unclear what this means for Frost’s early recruiting efforts at Nebraska, especially with the early signing period coming up in three weeks, but it is definitely a classy way to handle what can be an awkward situation.
