The University of Nebraska has fired head football coach Scott Frost.  The announcement came Sunday morning after Nebraska lost 45-42,  at home Saturday to Georgia Southern.  The loss drops Nebraska's record to 1-2 in the 2022 season.  

 Nebraska Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Trev Alberts released the following statement:

"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."  

Nebraska will host Oklahoma on Saturday, September 17.  Kick-off is scheduled for 10 am,  MT  with national television coverage on FOX.  Radio coverage will begin at 6 am MT on KCOW 1400 am and 92.5 fm.
