Scott Frost continues to learn as he coaches Huskers through pandemic

"Every time you step up to the plate there's going to be new pitches coming at you," Frost said. And you've got to be ready to swing at them and hit them."

LINCOLN – Scott Frost has been through a lot as a football coach. Games canceled from hurricanes, lightning and unexpected schedule changes.

However, nothing could have prepared him for navigating the past few months of a global pandemic and the racial tensions across the country.

“The best you can do is try to address every situation in a timely manner and the best way that you know how,” Frost said last week in a Zoom press conference. “And every time you step up to the plate there’s going to be new pitches coming at you. And you’ve got to be ready to swing at them and hit them.”

Frost credits UNL’s leadership for helping him and the Huskers navigate these tough times. He hopes Nebraska will learn as much from this situation as he has.

“I’m confident we’ve handled this as well or better than anyone else in the country,” Frost said. “And hopefully, given ourselves a little bit of an advantage to adapt to this difficult times.”

Frost and the Huskers continue voluntary workouts through June 30. They will be able to start holding mandatory workouts and film sessions on July 13, and mandatory walk-throughs on July 24.
