With all the attention on Tennessee's awful coaching search this week, one thing that's flown under the radar is how quiet things have been out of Nebraska. Usually, that's for a reason and a good thing at that. Barring a surprise, it would appear the Cornhuskers are closing in on naming UCF's Scott Frost their new coach. Per Bruce Feldman of Sports Illustrated, Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos has been calling recruits to tell them Frost has most of his new staff in place. Brett McMurphy adds that Frost agreed to a seven-year, $35 million deal. However, it's worth pointing out that Frost reportedly had at least some level of hesitation about returning to his alma mater. Given the sensitive nature of the reports, Nebraska wouldn't be able to comment on that publicly even if it wanted to. Nevertheless, all of this did come out while UCF is on the field competing in the AAC Championship Game.
