Scott Andrew Frost (born January 4, 1975) is an American football coach. He played collegiately for Nebraska as a quarterback. He was drafted in the third round (67th pick) by the New York Jets and played six years in the National Football League as a defensive back with the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


College career

Scott Frost started his college career at Stanford University. He attended Stanford for two years before transferring to Nebraska.

Frost started for Nebraska during the 1996 and 1997 seasons, going 11-2 and 13-0 respectively. In 1997, he was the starting quarterback for the final National Championship team for legendary coach Tom Osborne and was a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. He was also involved in an incident involving Nebraska's star running back Lawrence Phillips, in which Kate McEwen, Phillips' girlfriend and a member of the Nebraska women's basketball team, had been in Frost's room when Phillips broke in and assaulted McEwen. Phillips was later charged with domestic abuse.

In the 1997 season, during a regular season game against Missouri, Frost threw a pass that was kicked by Shevin Wiggins and caught by Matt Davison for a touchdown. This play has affectionately been called "the Catch" by Nebraska fans since. The touchdown sent the game in to overtime, and Frost sealed Nebraska's victory with a rushing touchdown. He led the Nebraska team that beat Peyton Manning's Tennessee Volunteers in the 1998 Orange Bowl.

Frost holds the school record with 155 attempted passes with no interceptions.


After playing six seasons in the NFL, in 2002 Frost accepted an offer by his alma mater to be a graduate assistant coach preparing the Cornhuskers defense for the Independence Bowl. He later returned to the NFL for a tryout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In 2006, he accepted an offer by his alma mater's rival, Kansas State, to fill the same position. In 2007, he joined the University of Northern Iowa coaching staff as the linebackers coach, later being promoted to Co-Defensive Coordinator.

On January 26, 2009, Frost was hired as the wide receivers coach for the University of Oregon.[1] On September 3, 2009, after Oregon lost its season opening game against Boise State, Frost restrained Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount as he confronted a group of fans. The entire ordeal was broadcast live on national television.[2]
