Monday Morning Quarterback: Do you agree with the Coach Frost two-year contract extension?
Chancellor Ronnie Green and Athletic Director Bill Moos announced a two-year extension of Coach Scott Frost’s contract Saturday, extending the agreement through the 2026 season. Frost was already under contract for five more seasons through 2024 with his existing seven-year, $35 million deal.
Frost is 8-13 cumulative in his second season at Nebraska. The Huskers are 4-6 overall and 2-5 in Big Ten play this season, and have beaten only one team with a record over .500. The team has been saddled with injury issues throughout the year, and losing Maurice Washington was a big blow. Frost has definitely had to deal with some heightened expectations this year at least in part based on his second-year jump at Central Florida to 13-0.
The competition for big-time college coaches is intense. Continuity is important, especially for recruiting. After his UCF year 2, Frost must have been swamped with offers. And no doubt a school has to pay to play. Nebraska is doing that with Frost – $5.0 million yearly plus $950k bonus puts him at 15th on the list on best-paid coaches in the NCAA.
What do you think – was it right for Nebraska to lock Coach Frost up for the next seven seasons?
