If you're an Oregon Ducks fan, finding out your head coach and wide receivers coach allegedly "ran with the bulls" in Spain might be something worth bragging about.

Start bragging, Ducks.

On July 16th, wide receivers coach Scott Frost tweeted just that:

Yep. This happened. We ran. #Pamplona #sanfermin2012 #vamospatos…

Pretty impressive for head coach Chip Kelly and Frost, who are gearing up for the 2012 season. Apparently, a short, eight-day trip to Spain brought out the fearlessness in the two men and an unidentified friend.

For those that know Kelly, this adventure isn't shocking.

It really isn't that shocking for Frost, either.

Frost's career to this point has been one filled with many moments to be proud of. The Lincoln, Neb., native led the Nebraska Cornhuskers to a national championship as quarterback during the 1997 season. Frost can even brag that he beat the legendary Peyton Manning and the Tennessee Volunteers in the 1998 Orange Bowl.

From there, Frost found himself as a member of the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, the NFL is ultimately not where Frost shined most—it was in coaching.

A quick NFL hiatus in 2002 let Frost see the coaching side of things as a graduate assistant for the Cornhuskers. He would then return to the same position at the end of his NFL career with Kansas State.

By 2007 Frost was ready for more responsibility and found his way to the University of Northern Iowa as the linebackers coach, then as co-defensive coordinator.

An impressive resume already, but 2009 brought a change for Frost, who wound up back on the offensive side of the ball, coaching wide receivers for the University of Oregon.

Four years later, Frost prepares to enter 2012 with a group that was once viewed as inexperienced. The former quarterback took his experience on offense and transformed the group into a stronger, more reliable corps.

Frost impressed so many that he became heavily mentioned as a candidate for the Nebraska offensive-coordinator job in 2011.

However, Frost stayed put in his new home of Eugene, and 2012 is looking good for the 34-year-old.

Vying for a shot at a Pac-12 title, Frost will continue on his path of hard work. Duck fans should rejoice in an assistant coach like Frost.

After all, if he isn't afraid to run with the bulls, who knows what else he is capable of?
