Nebraska AD Trev Alberts reportedly headed to Texas A&M

Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts is expected to leave his alma mater and accept the same position at Texas A&M, multiple outlets reported Wednesday.

He would replace Ross Bjork, who was hired in January as athletic director at Ohio State.

Alberts has been athletic director at Nebraska since the start of the 2021-22 academic year. One of his biggest moves with the Cornhuskers was to fire fifth-year head coach Scott Frost three weeks into the 2022 season and later replace him with Matt Rhule.

Alberts wouldn’t have to make any such move this time. Football coach Jimbo Fisher was fired in November, and Alberts would inherit new coach Mike Elko, who was hired in December to lead the Aggies.

Now 53, Alberts was a linebacker at Nebraska and was the school’s first Butkus Award winner and an All-American in 1993. The Colts selected him No. 5 overall in the 1994 NFL Draft, and he played in Indianapolis for three seasons before retiring.

Before becoming the Cornhuskers’ AD, Alberts was the athletic director at Nebraska-Omaha.

Nebraska hires Trev Alberts as AD

Nebraska on Wednesday named former standout linebacker and team captain Trev Alberts as athletic director.

Alberts replaces the retired Bill Moos after serving as the athletic director at University of New Orleans since 2009.

Alberts, 50, won the Butkus Award at Nebraska as the top linebacker in college football in 1993 and was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts fifth overall in 1994.

His tasks at Nebraska include overseeing the football program run by former quarterback Scott Frost. He’s 12-20 as head coach of the Cornhuskers. Frost transferred to Nebraska from Stanford in 1995 after Alberts’ college days were done and led the team to the national title in 1997.

Alberts, a member of the Nebraska Hall of Fame, became a studio and game analyst for ESPN and Westwood One in 1996.
