Pelini tyring to lure Oregon assistant Scott Frost?

Oregon wide receivers coach Scott Frost could be returning to his alma mater, Nebraska, to join Bo Pelini’s coaching staff.

According to his father Larry Frost, “I think he’s just going to have to wait and see what they offer. He really gets along well with Chip Kelly. They have similar philosophies — not that he wouldn’t with Bo, butI don’t think he’s going to leave unless it’s some place for real advancement. That’s important to him.”

Frost recently finished his second year on the staff at Oregon. He led Nebraska, as a quarterback, to the 1997 National Championship. After a five year playing career that including stints with four different organizations (Jets, Browns, Packers, Bucs), Frost landed his first full-time coaching job at Northern Iowa in 2007.

Reportedly, Oregon will negotiate to keep Frost even if it’s the offensive coordinator job that Pelini offers Frost. Good luck, Oregon.

After bonuses, Frost was paid $234,266 in 2009-10.

In case you forgot, this guy balled in college. Here's the evidence:
