Scott Frost wins AFCA Coach of the Year honors
Continuing his burgeoning collection of trophy hardware, Scott Frost Tuesday night was named as the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) FBS Coach of the Year.
This is at least the fourth major national honor Frost has claimed, joining the Eddie Robinson Award, Associated Press and Home Depot Coach of the Year honors.
Taking over a team that went 0-12 in 2015, Frost coached UCF to a 6-7 record last season.
This season, Frost led the Knights sitting to a perfect 13-0 that included winning the football program’s second outright AAC championship and beating Auburn after earning the Group of Five’s New Year’s Six bowl bid.
Not long after Frost won the AAC title, it was confirmed that he would be the next head coach at his alma mater Nebraska.
