Nebraska football coach Scott Frost is off to a rough start in his return to Lincoln after losing $165,000 in memorabilia over the weekend.
According to the police, the thieves entered through an unlocked door at Frost's unoccupied home near the Pine Lake Road and 27th Street sometime between Friday and Sunday at 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. The burglars stole two Nebraska championship rings, two Central Florida championship rings, and 10 Oregon championship rings.
The suspects, who are yet to be identified by local authorities, also took a gaming console and five pairs of Air Jordan shoes from Frost's stint at Oregon. According to Capt. Jeri Roeder, Frost was still doing an inventory on the items stolen. She reiterated that the total loss might be higher.
The family of Frost hasn't moved into the home yet since it is currently under renovation. Frost and his wife have an 8-month-old son.
Police Urges Public To Help Them
The Lincoln Crimestoppers urged the public to contact them if there is any information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects. The public can call them at 402-475-3600. The police also asked everyone to contact them at 402-441-6000 if the public knows someone who is trying to sell the items.
The police added that they have yet to determine if Frost's home was the intended target of the burglary. Frost has yet to release a comment through the Nebraska athletic department regarding the unfortunate incident.
Legendary Nebraska Quarterback
Frost was a name that needs no introduction in Nebraska, as the quarterback once led his team into winning the prestigious National title in 1997. Frost made a triumphant return to his Alma Mater late last year due to the great demand of fans.
Prior to joining Nebraska as a player in 1996, Frost also suited up for Stanford from 1993 to 1994. He was drafted by the New York Jets as the 67th overall pick in the 1998 National Football League Draft.
Nebraska, which last won a conference title in the 1999 season, recognized Frost as the savior of their storied program. The team has undergone four coaching changes since the 2004 season. The 43-year-old Frost served as an assistant coach for Oregon for seven years before joining UCF two years ago.
Frost made headlines last year when he led UCF into an undefeated season. The team finished the year with an incredible 13-0 win-loss record. UCF also posted a remarkable victory over Auburn in the postseason.
