Former Huskers React To Scott Frost’s Termination At Nebraska

September 11, 2022

Former Huskers tweeted throughout the season to stand by the Nebraska coaching staff. They held out faith.

But after yet another one-score loss, this one a home upset at the hands of Georgia Southern, some hit their breaking point. Then the university’s decision came down. Former players, some with ties to Frost, shared their feelings on social media.

Ndamukong Suh, the last Husker to finish in the final three for the Heisman Trophy, simply let followers know he was available.

Will Compton stopped in Lincoln for the home opener against North Dakota. He brought his mobile podcast studio to Memorial Stadium, pretended to play trumpet among the University of Nebraska Marching Band and tweeted through anxieties. The Georgia Southern game finally got to him.

Fabian Washington, a standout defensive back for the Huskers 20 years ago, saw enough in the fourth quarter of the Georgia Southern game.

Washington tweeted on Sunday morning that the university’s choice to move on from Scott Frost was “the right decision.”

NFL running back Ameer Abdullah was silent on Sunday. After all, he had a game. But he tweeted frustrations after Nebraska’s opening loss to Northwestern.

Heisman Trophy winner Eric Crouch lent his voice. He and Frost are both former quarterbacks at Nebraska who moved positions during their NFL careers. Both are Nebraska natives. So Crouch empathized with Frost and the program.

Retired receiver Quincy Enunwa also chimed in.

Some, like former defensive back Scott Shanlee, focused on optimism for a new era. He was excited by interim head coach Mickey Joseph, another former Husker.
