Frost: 'I didn't even get a phone call'

Frost: 'I didn't even get a phone call'

OK, so you weave your way through the lengthy article about Scott Frost, reading about his strong relationship with Nike CEO Phil Knight, his big plans for Central Florida's football program, and the possibility of Big 12 expansion including UCF.

You read about how Oregon's offense, with Frost calling plays, finished in the top 10 nationally in scoring each year for five straight seasons.

At last, you get to the "the 800-pound Husker in the room," as the writer, Dennis Dodd, described it.

No question, many Nebraska fans believe UCF is merely a starter job for Frost before their native son comes home.

I'm always very careful with that assumption.

Said Frost: "When the [Nebraska] job was open a couple of years ago, I didn't even get a phone call. My mind is here. There's no part of me that is thinking about doing anything to get another job.

"I believe in what this place can become."

Should the 41-year-old Frost have received a call from Shawn Eichorst? You can debate that question all day long. Bottom line, Eichorst had his own style of coach in mind. He clearly sought a head coach with experience in that role. This much is certain: A lot of Husker fans will watch UCF closely as long as the former Big Red quarterback is running the show.
