Scott Frost hasn't been back to Memorial Stadium for a long time. In fact, the Nebraska native can't remember the last time he saw a game in Lincoln.

"I haven't felt comfortable here for a while, because it didn't feel like home to me," Frost told reporters Sunday after his introductory news conference as Husker coach. "I think the new leadership here helps it feel like home."

Being back home is going to require a new season ticket plan for the ex-Husker. There are two East Stadium seats in his name.

"I've been paying alumni dues for many years to keep the seats in East Stadium that my grandpa bought in 1947 after (World War II)," Frost said. "And I still have those seats. I might not need them now, but that's how special this place is to me, and I'm glad I think the time is right to try and build it into what it was again."

Frost was occupied with his duties at Central Florida the past two years, but he said he was able to watch the Huskers from afar.

"From afar, it didn't look like the Nebraska that I knew," he said. "I haven’t been in this building to see all these changes. This place is spectacular. They’ve done an unbelievable job with these facilities. I think, I say the time is right because everything is set up here for us to do what we have to do to get this place back and I know with all the support of the people in this state and all the former players and the leadership on this university, I know we can get it done."
