The NCAA also found that Frost violated head coach responsibility rules.The violations occurred when a former Nebraska special teams analyst “provided technical or tactical instruction to student-athletes during practices and film sessions,” according to the NCAA.

We have had outstanding collaboration with the NCAA, and I want to thank the NCAA staff for their time and professionalism throughout this process,” Nebraska Athletic Director Trev Alberts said in a statement. “It is important for the Nebraska Athletic Department and football program to put this matter behind us and turn our full attention to the upcoming season. We are pleased with the outcome and believe the negotiated resolution is fair and equitable. At Nebraska we are committed to running an athletic department that is fully compliant with all NCAA rules.”With Nebraska cooperating under the negotiated settlement the sanctions may not be appealed.Nebraska’s probationary period will also be extended through April 2023 and the university received a $10,000 fine. The football program will have a reduction of countable football coaches by one for two days of practice during spring 2022.

Frost also will serve a five-day suspension from all coaching duties during the “championship segment” of the 2022 season after the NCAA determined that the Husker football program violated rules for countable coaches.

The NCAA also found that Frost violated head coach responsibility rules.

The violations occurred when a former Nebraska special teams analyst “provided technical or tactical instruction to student-athletes during practices and film sessions,” according to the NCAA. He was a noncoaching staff member, which caused the Nebraska football program to “exceed the number of permissible coaches.”

The NCAA said Frost failed to properly monitor the analyst and failed to notify compliance staff about the violation.

With Nebraska cooperating under the negotiated settlement the sanctions may not be appealed.
