Scott Frost named American Football Coaches Association FBS coach of the year

Scott Frost named American Football Coaches Association FBS coach of the year

Coaches, rather than worrying about wasting a year of eligibility, could use a promising talent if a need arises late in the season.

Scott Frost led one of the greatest turnarounds in college football history, so it's only fitting he was named the 2017 American Football Coaches Association FBS coach of the year.

Frost's coaching peers selected him as the victor of the 2017 AFCA Coach of the Year Award on Tuesday, Jan. 9, and the next day Frost won the Paul "Bear" Bryant Coach of the Year Award.

Just two years ago the Knights went 0-12.

UCF defeated Auburn in the Peach Bowl, a team that beat both Georgia and Alabama, the two national championship participants, during the regular season.

They officially finished sixth in the final Associated Press poll, with four first-place votes, but they can enjoy their delusions.

After beating Auburn, UCF athletic director Danny White said the Knights were declaring themselves national champions.

One year before he led UCF to a flawless season, Frost's Knights were the nation's most-improved team in 2016 when he became the only first-year head coach in FBS history to make a bowl game with a team that was winless the previous season.

Frost was nominated for the award after earning AFCA FBS Region 1 honors last month.

"I was anxious that all of our blessings and luck would run out in 2017 but we were able to win a game in 2018", he said. "I'm rooting for the UCF guys and hope they keep doing things great going forward and I can't wait to start building new relationships with people in Lincoln".
