Oregon reportedly does not consider Scott Frost ‘available’ for potential coaching vacancy

Another piece of intrigue has been added to the never-ending pile of Scott Frost-to-Nebraska rumors.

Thanks to a domino effect that could happen if Texas A&M were to hire Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher, Oregon has begun looking into potential coaching replacements if Florida State were to in turn hire Ducks coach Willie Taggart, per FootballScoop.

One coach that Oregon isn’t going after? Scott Frost.

FootballScoop’s understanding is Oregon has such concern that a deal between Taggart and the Seminoles could happen that it has begun doing due diligence on its own candidates in preparation for a second search in as many years. Sources tell FootballScoop Oregon does not consider Scott Frost “available” should their position open. Make your own assumptions from there.

It’s quite significant that the Ducks don’t think they could get Frost considering he served as offensive coordinator in Eugene for three seasons before heading to Central Florida. Turning down a program with a personal connection like that, along with a major opportunity in his current state with Florida, is probably something Nebraska fans can be happy about.

Frost has been rumored as a candidate for Nebraska since well before Mike Riley’s firing, but the rumor mill has been churning at full speed in the last week.
