UCF gives coach Scott Frost extension, $300,000 raise
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) University of Central Florida has given football coach Scott Frost a one-year contract extension.
The school announced Thursday that Frost’s original contract will now run through the 2021 season and will include a $300,000 annual raise. The American Athletic Conference coach now earns $2 million per year after one season on the job. The Knights were 6-7 in Frost’s first season and made and played in the AutoNation Cure Bowl.
Frost, the former offensive coordinator of the Oregon Ducks who replaced George O’Leary at UCF, took over a program that was coming off a 0-12 season. Frost was hired on Nov. 29, 2015, and the six-game turnaround last season was the fourth largest by a winless program in 20 years.
