Scott Frost isn't going to wind up at Florida.

UCF head coach Scott Frost is one of the hottest commodities in college football right now, but it doesn't look like he'll be taking a bigger job in-state. Frost, according to a number of reports will not be taking the gig with the Gators.

Dan Wolken says that Frost went "back and forth" on meeting with Florida, ultimately deciding not to pursue the job. Another report suggests Frost was actually offered the job this morning and turned it down.

Either way, it doesn't look like he's headed to Gainesville. That's good news for Nebraska fans.

Frost, in his second year at UCF, has the Knights sporting an 11-0 record with a trip to the AAC title game against Memphis next week. At this point, it'd be a shock if he took his next job before that's all played out.
