Scott Frost is bringing seven of his UCF assistant football coaches to Lincoln.
They include new defensive coordinator Erik Chinander, who held the same post at Central Florida. Greg Austin, an offensive lineman for the Huskers from 2003-06, is NU’s offensive line coach. Ryan Held, a walk-on receiver on Nebraska’s 1994 and ’95 national championship teams, will coach running backs.
All seven coaches spent the last two years on Frost’s staff, helping orchestrate an historic turnaround that saw the Knights go from a winless record the year before they arrived to 12-0 this season.
