Georgia Southern beat the Cornhuskers 45-42 on Saturday in Lincoln, Neb. Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts announced the move around in a news release.
Associate head coach Mickey Joseph will serve as interim head coach for all of those other season.
“Earlier today I met with coach Frost and informed him we were creating a change in the leadership of our football program, effective immediately,” Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts said in a news release.
