Huskers fans should be happy with this.

Lars Anderson, a senior writer for Bleacher Report, reported on Friday night that Nebraska was "close" to securing a commitment from UCF head coach Scott Frost.

The Huskers and their former star quarterback were reportedly close on a seven year, $35 million contract to bring him to Lincoln to replace Mike Riley.

Anderson doubled down on his report on Saturday, saying he's "90 percent" convinced it'll happen.

A seven year, $35 million contract would instantly make Frost one of the country's highest-paid head coaches despite only having two years of head coaching experience.

Still, it feels like this is something Nebraska has to do.
