New Nebraska head football coach Frost names assistant coaches
LINCOLN, Ne (FOX42KPTM) - New Nebraska head football coach Scott Frost has announced the hiring of more than a half dozen assistant coaches, according to a news release from Nebraska Athletics. The new coaches all come to Lincoln after spending the past two seasons on Frost's Central Florida staff.
That staff includes offensive line coach Greg Austin, defensive coordinator Erik Chinander, defensive line coach Mike Dawson, outside linebackers/special teams coach Jovan Dewitt, defensive backs coach Travis Fisher, running backs coach Ryan Held and quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco.
"This is an outstanding group of coaches and men of tremendous character," said Frost. "They are excellent teachers, mentors and recruiters and have earned great respect from the young men who play for them."
The new assistant coaches will all have two year contracts through December 31, 2019. All of the coaches are currently part-time employees to allow them to coach UCF in its postseason game. Their status will change to full-time after that game.
