Scott Frost opens up about public criticism of direction of the program
"That's the nature of this job," Frost said. "There's going to be people who don't agree with everything. If you're throwing the ball, you should be running it. If you're running it, you should be throwing it. That's the nature of the job."
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Scott Frost knows criticism comes with being the Nebraska football coach. And he’s seen plenty of it during his three seasons as the Huskers’ head man, especially after his third-straight losing season.
Within the past month, Nebraska has seen two of its more dynamic playmakers on offense transfer away from the program in Luke McCaffrey and Wan’Dale Robinson. That’s added another round of critics, including several former Husker players.
“That’s the nature of this job,” Frost said. “There’s going to be people who don’t agree with everything. If you’re throwing the ball, you should be running it. If you’re running it, you should be throwing it. That’s the nature of the job.”
Frost admitted though, this time it stings a little more, especially when it’s former teammates.
“Sometimes it can get a little personal here, especially because this is my home state,” Frost said. “But listen, we want every former player to be involved in this. We’ve called a bunch of them these last couple weeks to make sure they know that we want them around. Winning takes care of all that. So that’s what we got our mind focused on. I tell the guys to not pay attention to the outside noise and the rest of it is just noise and people in the way of us try to accomplish what we need to accomplish.”
