Former Nebraska quarterback Scott Frost took UCF to a bowl game in his first season and was rewarded accordingly.
Frost signed an extension that will keep him under contract through the 2021 season, UCF announced Thursday. Frost previously had a five-year deal he signed in December 2015 when he was hired to his first head coaching job.
UCF went winless in the season prior to Frost's arrival. He led the Golden Knights to a 6-6 record during the 2016 season before losing to Arkansas State in the Cure Bowl.
Frost, a Husker from 1995-97, was the first quarterback in program history to both run and throw for more than 1,000 yards in the same season. He helped lead the Huskers to an undefeated record and national championship as a senior in 1997.
