A shocker to the Nebraska community as Bill Moos has been confirmed as no longer being in charge of Husker Athletics. Moos, who is 70 years old, was thought to be nearing retirement, but the announcement of his departure comes as a shock to Husker fans and media alike.
BREAKING: Bill Moos' tenure as Nebraska's athletic director is over, sources have confirmed to the Journal Star. #Huskers— Husker Extra (@huskerextra) June 25, 2021
Moos originally signed a five year contract back in 2017 that included a completion bonus of $1.25 million dollars. Moos will be owed $500,000 as compensation for resigning in 2021.
He has accomplished a lot since coming over from Washington State in 2017. He has made major hires in all three men’s sports. His biggest hire has been bringing Scott Frost back home from the University of Central Florida. He brought in Fred Hoiberg for men’s basketball and Will Bolt for baseball.
Moos also helped undersee a transformation of the department and the groundbreaking of the Huskers new athletic performance building that is set to debut for the 2022 season.
