Kevin Sumlin top candidate for UCF's next head coach

Kevin Sumlin top candidate for UCF's next head coach

Frost also said "we still have some talking to do" as it relates to him returning to UCF to coach the Knights' bowl game. "UCF, Orlando is an unbelievable place with unlimited potential".

One of his first moves as a head coach was to add players' names to the back of their jerseys again after O'Leary removed them.

UCF is also expected to consider offensive coordinator Troy Walters for its coaching vacancy, according to sources. The Golden Knights were 0-12 the year before Frost took over.

Fans played husker trivia, had celebratory drinks and cigars, and cheered when Frost arrived at the podium.

"It is a great honor and privilege to have the opportunity to return to Nebraska and to lead the Husker football program", Frost said in the statement.

Frost said he appreciated Moos giving him the opportunity to lead the program. He just didn't expect to do so this quickly.

"I played here. I understand it", Frost said.

AD Bill Moos introduced Frost at a noon news conference saying, "I got the pick of the litter", and clarified his sentiment saying, "We got the pick of the litter". "We already have boots on the ground, getting out to see recruits and letting them know who we are".

"I can't think of anything more rewarding than turning this program around". "When you win a lot, people are interested in you". "The biggest part is I'm thrilled for these players, especially these seniors, because they've been through a lot now".

Former Husker wide receiver and Tecumseh native, Matt Davison "pestered" Frost until he said "yes", according to the new head coach. The Huskers have not won a conference championship in football since 1999 and have not contended for a national title since the early 2000s.

The reports came shortly after Central Florida defeated Memphis 62-55 in double overtime to win the American Athletic Conference championship to finish the season a ideal 12-0.
