Nebraska fired football coach Scott Frost on Sunday, one day after a 45-42 home loss to Georgia Southern in what had become an inevitable situation for the Huskers. Nebraska (1-2) were a three-touchdown favorite.
Assistant head coach Mickey Joseph will take over for the rest of the season. Nebraska hosts Oklahoma on Saturday.
Frost played at Nebraska from 1995 to ’97, returning home to play for Tom Osborne after beginning his career at Stanford. In 1997, he helped the Huskers go 13-0 and win the national championship. He became the first quarterback in school history to rush for more than 1,000 yards and pass for more than 1,000 yards in the same season. It would be the last national championship for Osborne and Nebraska.
Frost seemed like the perfect fit to return Nebraska to it’s glory days. Last season, the Huskers went 3-9. Frost ends his Nebraska coaching career with a 16-31 mark. Frost will receive his full $15 million buyout.
