Scott Frost has been granted a 2-year extension at Nebraska.

The terms of his original contract will remain intact; the extension pushes the expiration date from Dec. 31, 2024 to Dec. 31, 2026. He signed a 7-year, $35 million contract upon leaving UCF for Nebraska in 2017.

“Two years ago, we had the tremendous opportunity to bring Scott Frost home to Nebraska to lead our football program into the future.  We are even more committed to that decision today,” AD Bill Moos said.

“Coach Frost has shown tremendous leadership in beginning to rebuild our football program.  We appreciate that a change of this nature will not happen overnight.  We are committed to Scott and the direction he is taking this program.

“Scott is the right coach at the right time for this program.  We are excited for the heights to which he will take Nebraska football and the tremendous impact he will have in the development of our student athletes.”

Frost is 8-13 in nearly two full seasons at his alma mater.
