Former Nebraska football head coach resurfacing could be a sign that he’s finally ready to get back into coaching, as well as a hint as to where.
Since his firing from the Nebraska football program after the Georgia Southern game last year, former head coach Scott Frost has mostly laid extremely low. It appears he’s ready to start peeping his head out.
Laying low made quite a bit of sense for the Frost, considering everything that was said and written about Frost once he was no longer in Lincoln. However, he might feel as though he was “in hiding” long enough, considering he was spotted in Oregon this past Saturday, chatting it up with Ducks coaches.
The big question is, why was it in Autzen that he made his first real noticeable resurfacing of the college football season? Is it possible that he’s discussing a return to the coaching ranks at the place where he first began to see his star shine bright?
It would make a ton of sense.
While it’s safe to say that Scott Frost is still persona non-grata among more Nebraska football fans, the Oregon faithful certainly don’t have the same kind of emotions about the coach. He’s still likely a bit of a hero in that group, considering he was the offensive coordinator of a powerful attack.
Considering where Dan Lanning has the program these days, it also seems as if he could take a gamble on bringing in a coach who failed so spectacularly on such a big scale as Scott Frost did.
Especially if he’s just going to be an offensive analyst to start off with.
Ex-Nebraska football coach getting back into the business?
Obviously, any talk about a return to coaching for Frost is entirely speculation at this point. The former Husker coach hasn’t talked publicly about his plans since leaving Lincoln. Only those close to him have any idea.
But he’s young enough that it seems extremely unlikely that he’s done with the sport. He’s also got an ego the size of a house. It’s unlikely he’s going to let what happened to him at Nebraska football be his legacy.
For those wondering what’s next for the once-revered former Cornhusker, watch Oregon closely. If he’s hanging around this coming weekend, or really at any point in the not-to-distant future, it could be a strong signal as to what his plans are.
