After Nebraska fires Scott Frost, Huskers’ coaching search begins

Apparently, getting rid of Scott Frost was worth a full $15 million to Nebraska, because the program could have saved half that amount had they waited until Oct. 1 to make the move. But, instead, they opted to do it Sunday, officially announcing the coach’s dismissal right as the NFL Week 1 slate began.

Frost’s last game, a 45–42 home loss against Georgia Southern on Saturday, was a classic script. It was the 27th one-score game of Frost’s 47-game tenure and Nebraska was 5-22 in such games, which seems mathematically improbable due to the typical coin-flip nature of tight games. But the inability to win close contests will be the defining note of Frost’s tenure.
