Scott Frost bringing eight assistants with him from UCF

Scott Frost is now the head coach at Nebraska, and many of his assistants are making the trek from Orlando to Lincoln with him.

Nebraska announced the hiring of eight Central Florida assistants that are now Nebraska assistants. They are:

  • Defensive coordinator Erik Chinander
  • Offensive line coach Greg Austin
  • Defensive line coach Mike Dawson
  • Outside linebackers coach/special teams coordinator Jovan Dewitt
  • Defensive backs coach Travis Fisher
  • Running backs coach Ryan Held
  • Quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco

“This is an outstanding group of coaches and men of tremendous character who have played a key role in our success at UCF the past two seasons,” Frost said in a statement. “They are excellent teachers, mentors and recruiters and have earned great respect from the young men who play for them. I am proud they have chosen to join our staff as we get started at Nebraska.”

Additionally, former Husker Barrett Ruud will follow Frost from UCF to Nebraska in an as-yet-undefined role. He was a quality control assistant at UCF. Austin and Held are also former Nebraska players.
