Bill Moos Out as Nebraska Athletic Director

June 25, 2021

Bill Moos’ time as Nebraska’s athletic director has come to an end.

Sources confirmed the news to Hail Varsity Friday morning following a report from the Lincoln Journal Star. The timeline for an announcement is unclear, but it could come as early as Friday afternoon. The reasons for the departure are also unclear at this time.

Moos is three-and-a-half years into his contract, which runs until Dec. 31, 2022. He was hired in October 2017. During his time at Nebraska, Moos led the process for hiring football coach Scott Frost, men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg and baseball coach Will Bolt.

Through three seasons Frost is 12-20 as head coach, and Hoiberg is 14-45 after two seasons. Bolt got out of the gates quickly, however. After going 7-8 before the 2020 season was halted by the Covid-19 pandemic, Nebraska baseball, picked to finish sixth in the Big Ten, went 34-14 and won the regular-season conference title.

Moos was also a leader on the Huskers’ $155 million Go Big facility project, which is currently in progress. The athletic department, under Moos’ direction, also left its partnership with longtime partner Learfield IMG College and is bringing its multimedia rights in house.

A Nebraska spokesperson did not return a request for comment by the time of publishing. This story will be updated.
