It looks like Nebraska has hired Bill Callahan for a third time. Cornhuskers were fortunate enough to have the talented but clumsy QB Adrian Martinez transfer out. Martinez’s departure was the best thing to happen to Nebraska Football since Mike Riley and the AD that hired him got fired.That great news got spoiled by this announcement. Now Scott Frost brings in Whipple ; his pro set offense will be just as effective when Bill Callahan and Mike Riley installed it.This hire could end Frost’s tenure at Nebraska. Making Ron Brown the OC makes much more sense. Long time Cornhusker WR coach Ron Brow and QB Frost was around when they won NCAA champions. I’m finally starting to be convinced that Scott Frost is unfit for Nebraska.

I respectfully disagree about the future prospects and talent at Nebraska.
Nebraska has a historic football program, and a very loyal fan base. But Nebraska has struggled for years in recruiting, and is far from competitive in The Big 10.

The state of Nebraska has a weak HS football talent pool, facilities lag behind other schools, and the destination (Lincoln, Nebraska) is not attractive to athletes from the HS talent hotbeds.

Scott Frost did a great job at UCF, after inheriting a zero-win season from George O'Leary. In two years they were undefeated. Frost was approached about the Florida job, but he felt a strong bond for the Cornhuskers.
I doubt Frost will survive the next season.
I am confident that he will land in another coaching job soon, and will be successful.

The problem at Nebraska is not coaching. They simply do not have the athletes to compete at an elite level, and limited options to improve that reality.

Funny thing is that Nebraska brought in Bill Callahan for the purpose of trying to modernize NU football, introducing the Cornhuskers to such concepts as, inter alia, the forward pass.

Alas, it didn't go well. But nothing really has since then for Nebraska anyway.
