The University of Oregon offensive coordinator was born on this day in Wood River, Neb.
Frost began his college career at Stanford, but transferred to Nebraska after two seasons. He started two years for the Cornhuskers and led them to a 24-2 combined record that included a 1997 national championship after a 42-17 victory over Peyton Manning and Tennessee in the Orange Bowl.
Frost was a third-round NFL draft pick (No. 67) overall) of the New York Jets, for whom he played safety and on special teams from 1998-2000. He also had stints with Cleveland, Green Bay and Tampa Bay.
He became a graduate assistant coach at Nebraska in 2002, had the same role at Kansas State in 2006 and became linebackers coach at Northern Iowa in 2007. The next year, he became co-defensive coordinator there.
He joined the Ducks in 2009 as wide receivers coach under Chip Kelly and offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich. With Kelly's departure to the Philadelphia Eagles, Frost took over as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach on Jan. 31, 2013.
