The moment many Nebraska fans had been anxiously awaiting for months finally came, as HuskerOnline.com confirmed multiple national reports on Saturday that Central Florida's Scott Frost will be Nebraska's new head football coach. The former OR offensive coordinator initially signed on with UCF in the winter of 2015.

With a win in the conference championship game, the Knights are likely going to find themselves in one of the top bowl games this season. In his inaugural season with the team previous year, his squad went 6-6 in the regular season before falling to Arkansas State in the Cure Bowl.

Texas A&M last won a conference championship in 1998 when the Aggies were members of the Big 12. Taggart, who grew up in Bradenton, Florida, went 7-5 in his first season at Oregon .

Athletic director Bill Moos on Saturday announced the much-anticipated hire a bit later than expected, about two hours after Frost's 12th-ranked UCF team defeated No. 16 Memphis 62-55 in two overtimes in the American Athletic Conference championship game to extend its ideal record to 12-0.

Frost replaces former head coach Mike Riley.

The new Husker coach also played six seasons in the National Football League for four different teams. Frost's three predecessors had no ties to Nebraska, and his track record at OR and UCF has fans confident he is the right man to return the Huskers to their place in the college football hierarchy.

Previously, Frost was the offensive coordinator for the University of Oregon.

The 42-year-old Frost will look to help NU return to dominant form. "That's what we've done", Frost said. Riley spent three seasons as the head football coach in Lincoln and finished with a 19-19 record in his three years at the helm. The state of Nebraska and the Husker program mean a great deal to me. Frost said he was excited to return to his alma mater to coach in the press release.
