Nebraska Football: Scott Frost should stay, others need to go

A question was posed on Nebraska Twitter earlier today that I thought was rather interesting. The question was: Would you be okay with keeping Frost but changing his assistant coaches? My answer to that question would be a big “Yes.”

Now I know it’s not as easy as just getting rid of assistants and that’s that. Frost has been incredibly loyal to his assistant coaching staff, and I give him credit for that. I do not think you’d have to get rid of his entire coaching staff either.

All throughout the season, there have been two coaches who I believe should be let go. Quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco and offensive line coach Greg Austin would be those two. Positionally, the offensive line and quarterbacks have not performed up to par.

Nebraska football does not have to get rid of the entire coaching staff. In particular, I believe the defensive side of the football has performed well for the most part. There does need to be a shakeup within the staff however. At least on defense, we have seen increments of improvement.

In addition to just subtractions, Nebraska football also needs to invest in some form of special teams coach. A special teams analyst is not going to cut it. There needs to be a bona fide special-teams coach. An analyst is great, as that person can help you identify trends and what needs to be fixed. However, there needs to be a coach who is fully focused on special teams. This is an area that Nebraska football has struggled with for a number of years now.

If Scott Frost wants his tenure as the Nebraska football coach to change drastically, he needs to change assistant coaches. Things are not working, and changing assistants. is a quicker step than the alternative. I still believe in Frost, but he needs to change up his coaching staff. Otherwise, he may be the result of his own downfall.

The team has shown more competitiveness at times this season, but largely we have seen more of the same. It takes a while to build a program, which is why I am not set on firing Frost just yet. However, there certainly needs to be improvement in several areas. Failure to do so could be catastrophic.
