Nebraska AD Bill Moos discusses future: 'I want to stay here until we get back'
Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos isn’t planning on retirement anytime soon.
Moos has two years remaining on his contract with the Huskers, and he told Omaha.com’s Tom Shatel this week that he plans on staying at least that long.
He detailed several instances during his long career as an AD where he left a program just before they reached exceptional success.
“When I was (A.D.) at Montana we had a great run,” Moos told Shatel. “I leave in July and that fall they win their first national championship.
“I go to Oregon and have a hell of a run there. I leave and the next year they go to the Rose Bowl. I go back to Washington State and we have a train wreck and we get that back up. I leave and the next year [Mike] Leach wins 11 games and has them in the top 10.”
Those feelings have Moos wanting to stay in Lincoln until the football and men’s basketball programs get turned around.
If there’s a bright side for those programs, it’s on the recruiting trail. Scott Frost signed the No. 21 overall class in the country and the No. 5 class in the Big Ten per 247Sports Composite rankings. Fred Hoiberg’s 2021 class is also in the top 25, and includes 5-star guard Bryce McGowens.
Moos also had good news to share for Huskers fans in the form of spring game attendance.
With momentum trending positively, Moos is planning on sticking around.
“Heck, I want to stay here until we get back,” Moos said.
