Report: Bill Moos out as Nebraska AD

Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos is leaving his post effective immediately, the Lincoln (Neb.) Journal Star reported Friday.

The reason for his departure, which could be officially announced later Friday, was unclear.

Nebraska hired Moos in October 2017. He brought with him nearly 25 years of experience as an athletic director at Montana (1990-95), Oregon (1995-2007) and his alma mater, Washington State (2010-17). He played football for the Cougars.

At Nebraska, Moos hired football coach Scott Frost and men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg. The Cornhuskers have underperformed under Frost (12-20) and Hoiberg (14-45).

Moos, 70, also has been involved with Nebraska’s $155 million football facility, which is under construction.

His contract was due to expire at the end of 2022. As recently as December, he said he intended to stay through at least the end of his contract.

“We’re going to move the dial here, and I don’t want to be looking at that success from afar,” he said then, per the Journal Star. “I have every intention of fulfilling the contract.”
