It looks like there is now one less coaching vacancy in the world of college football. The Central Florida Knights were easily one of the worst teams in the country this year as they just finished their first 0-12 season in program history after winning nine games the last three seasons.
Long time head coach George O’Leary announced his resignation and retirement midseason and the coaching search has been on for the Knights since then. UCF announced that they had found their new head coach and they will be going with an offensive guy in Oregon offensive coordinator Scott Frost.
OFFICIAL: Welcome to UCF, @coach_frost!

Frost has served under Mark Helfrich as the offensive coordinator in Eugene since 2013 and was the quarterbacks coach under Chip Kelly. He has been an integral part in the Ducks’ success and the Knights hope he brings that same winning attitude to Orlando.
