UCF has named its successor to Scott Frost, introducing Missouri offensive coordinator and former Oklahoma quarterback Josh Heupel as the Knights' next head football coach on Tuesday morning.

"I'm thrilled to welcome Josh and his family to UCF," athletics director Danny White said Tuesday. "I believe we've identified one of the brightest offensive minds in college football. His offensive system is very similar to what we've been running. I know he's going to utilize all the great talent on our roster and continue to add to it. He's no stranger to success, winning a national championship as a quarterback and leading a number of extremely high-powered offensive teams."

Heupel has been the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Missouri for the past two seasons, helping work with Drew Lock to lead an explosive offense that has the Tigers playing in a bowl game this year.
