Hopes for Scott Frost and his Nebraska football staff remain high after a losing first season, especially with how it finished the year.

The Huskers won four of its final six games, and took Ohio State and Iowa down to the wire, with both games on the road.

Last year, Frost brought most of his staff over from his undefeated UCF Knights team.

Frost received a contract worth $5 million for 2018, per USA Today's coaching salary database. The staff was set to make $4.5 million as a group.

Now, that whole assistant group is up for extension.

Frost's coaches were set to have their contract expire at the end of the year. It sounds like the school wiwll be looking to keep that group together moving forward.

Nebraska football has confirmed that the school is finalizing one-year extensions for the entire Huskers staff, below Scott Frost.

From the Omaha World-Herald:

Contract extensions have been offered to all 10 of Nebraska's football assistants, Nebraska’s athletic department confirmed Wednesday, and four of the assistant coaching contract extensions have already been finished.

Others are pending, while the extensions of a few contracts, because of a 2015 memorandum, must be approved by NU President Hank Bounds.

Per the report, Bounds has to approve extensions for coordinators Erik Chinander and Troy Walters, as they make over $500,000 per year.

With the extensions, Nebraska's staff, which remains intact from last season, will be under contract through December 31, 2020.
