Everyone knew it was coming after Nebraska fell to 0-3 with a 45-42 loss at home to Georgia Southern on Saturday, September 10. The next morning, the school made it official and posted the following brief statement from Nebraska Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Trev Alberts on huskers.com:
"Earlier today I met with Coach Frost and informed him we were making a change in the leadership of our football program, effective immediately. Scott has poured his heart and soul into the Nebraska football program both as a quarterback and head coach, and I appreciate his work and dedication.
"After the disappointing start to our season, I decided the best path forward for our program was to make a change in our head coaching position. Associate Head Coach Mickey Joseph will serve as our interim head coach for the remainder of the 2022 season."
The loss to Georgia Southern was the 8th straight to FBS teams, all by single digits. It dropped Nebraska's record for the 2022 season to 1-2 with the only win coming against FCS member North Dakota the week prior. He leaves the school with records of 16-31 over-all and 10-26 in conference games. Frost was hired after leading UCF to marks of 19-7 over-all and 12-4 in American Conference play over the course of the 2016 and 2017 seasons. His career record now stands at 35-38.
