The Nebraska football program and head coach Scott Frost are reportedly being investigated by the NCAA.

Brett McMurphy of the Action Network reports that the NCAA is looking into potential practice violations and there appears to be video evidence. Frost, current and former staffers, players, and others have been interviewed during the investigation.

McMurphy writes:

“Nebraska’s football program and coach Scott Frost are under NCAA investigation for improper use of analysts and consultants during practices and games. The school, sources said, has ‘significant video footage’ confirming the practice violations took place in the presence of Frost and other assistants.”

Nebraska may have also violated NCAA guidelines and rules with its workouts during the coronavirus pandemic, but it is unclear whether the NCAA is investigating those violations.

Nebraska relocated its strength workouts to an undisclosed off-campus location to avoid detection by non-football school officials, sources said. The unauthorized organized workouts were held at the direction of NU’s strength and conditioning staff, which was in direct violation of NCAA rules. It is unknown if the NCAA is investigating these specific allegations, a source said.

Per McMurphy, Frost has obtained legal counsel.

As for what potential punishment could be handed down, there is no clear indication but Frost could receive a suspension for “an unknown number of games.”

Frost was hired as the Cornhuskers head coach after leading the UCF Knights to an undefeated season. Through his first three years in Nebraska, he has yet to find the same success on the field.

Nebraska is set to open its 2021 campaign on Saturday, August 28 against Illinois.
