Even those close to the Central Florida program are now expecting Scott Frost to leave for Nebraska.
According to Ryan Bass, who covers Central Florida for 247Sports, there are those on Frost’s staff at UCF already physically getting ready for a move.
“I’m told it is now all but imminent he will be leaving UCF and accepting the Nebraska job as early as Saturday night, following UCF’s AAC title game against Memphis,” Bass reported at Knights247. "Staffers close to Frost have already begun the process of cleaning out their desks and finalizing paperwork in preparation of a move.
“UCF people are beginning to accept the fact that Frost is all but gone after this week. I’ve also heard (athletic director) Danny White is in the preliminary stages of vetting potential candidates to replace Frost.”
Central Florida made a strong push to keep Frost. According to Bass, there’s been a contract extension with some impressive dollars attached to it in front of Frost for at least three weeks.
But on Monday, the reporter noted that Frost sounded like a coach with one foot out the door. Frost told reporters during the press conference: “I’d be hurt if Nebraska wasn’t interested in me. I’m from there.”
