Nebraska Football: Keeping Scott Frost for 2022 was a no-brainer

Monday, Nebraska Athletics announced that Nebraska football head coach Scott Frost would be returning for 2022.

Frost is 15-27 in four years as the Nebraska football head coach. He currently has a 3-7 record on the season.

To me, this was a no-brainer. Although it has been a rough season in terms of wins and losses, Nebraska football has played close games this year. Oklahoma, Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State all had the potential to be wins. Perhaps more than any other year during Frost tenure, this year he has shown some real progress in terms of fielding a competitive football team.

One of the things that’s interesting to me is that Frost will restructure his contract. His current contract is set to expire on December 31, 2026. He still has a bit more time on his deal.

What could this mean? Maybe this means more money for new assistants. There could be some potential changes happening down the road in terms of the coaching staff. Time will tell, but I certainly wonder what this restructure means in terms of the overall outlook of the program.

Although it has been a rough go of things so far in his tenure, firing him would have been a disaster. Nebraska football needs to have continuity, and firing him before next season would have completely ruined that. Whether or not some of you want to see it, there is progress being made. As long as Frost continues to hit the transfer portal and recruits, I feel confident in letting him continue on with the program.

This team is competitive, and this team plays hard. This year more than ever, Nebraska football is beginning to have an identity in terms of the way they play. Especially on defense, things have improved in a big way.

Trying to rebuild this program has required a lot of patience and a lot of things needed to be fixed. Some of them have been already, while others are still a work in progress. It seems like Trev Alberts knows that, and it seems like the University is confident in the coach. I am too, and hopefully the results will come sooner rather than later.
