Frost wins Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award

Dec 14, 2017 - 7:09 PM Outgoing Central Florida coach Scott Frost was named winner of the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award on Thursday.

Frost, who will be Nebraska's coach next season, is the first winner of the award from a non-power conference school since Utah's Urban Meyer in 2004. Utah was a member of the Mountain West at that time.

Frost guided the Knights to a 12-0 record. He plans to coach UCF against Auburn in the Peach Bowl before fully exiting for Nebraska.

The other finalists were Alabama-Birmingham's Bill Clark, Florida Atlantic's Lane Kiffin, Army's Jeff Monken, Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley, Georgia's Kirby Smart, Clemson's Dabo Swinney and Fresno State's Jeff Tedford.

Frost also won the Home Depot Coach of the Year award earlier this month.
