Baby Frost watch is officially over.
The university and its fans have been on pins and needles for the past few weeks awaiting the birth of head football coach Scott Frost’s first child.
Frost said, if his wife Ashley went into labor during a game, he would hand over his headset to an assistant coach and rush to be by her side. During the team’s last game at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, a private plane was reportedly on stand-by should Frost need to leave.
Ultimately, the emergency evacuation was unnecessary as Frost got to announce the birth of his child to his team. UCF shared video of the emotional announcement on social media Thursday morning.
While coach Frost settles into fatherhood, there is speculation about his professional future.
The up and coming coach has been linked to the vacancy at the University of Florida. Frost, who is a Nebraska alum and former Heisman Trophy winner at the school, has also been rumored to replace the Cornhuskers’ current coach Mike Riley.
Frost has has appeared on several national media outlests, saying he enjoys his current job at UCF and loves Orlando.
