Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos is retiring and stepping down from his position, the university says. His last day will be June 30th." To understand just how special Nebraska is, you need to spend time here, meet our people," said Moos in a statement. "Visit our cities and towns" He also stated that Memorial Stadium has an impressive red sea of fans on Saturdays during football season.
Moos came to the Huskers in 2017 after serving as Washington State's athletic director for ten years - one with many highs but plenty of lows too.
I want to thank AD Moos for his service to Husker Athletics. Nebraska gained tremendous new talent, had steady leadership during COVID-19 and our student athletes have continued to shine both on the field and in the classroom. https://t.co/PSeZJIvHIg pic.twitter.com/wD3DqX140o

Gathering some of the most knowledgeable, experienced coaches for each sport, he has assembled a dream team.
After making numerous splash hires like head football coach Scott Frost and basketball coach Fred Hoiberg- as well as current baseball coach Will Bolt-- it is clear that this man knows how to assemble an elite staff.
“I respect Bill Moos’ decision to retire and I want to thank him for his service to Husker Athletics and our university,” UNL Chancellor Ronnie Green said. “Under his tenure, Nebraska has gained tremendous talent with outstanding new coaches and senior administrators. I particularly appreciate his steady and capable leadership during the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. He and his team were able to help mitigate those impacts and ensure that Husker Athletics came through this challenging year in good shape. The positive financial position of our Athletic Department is the envy of many across the nation.”
Green expressed his hope that a national search for the new Athletic Director will be launched soon. Until then, Garrett Klassy has been asked to take on an interim position of AD until they find someone suitable. With great respect and admiration from those in the department, he hopes to provide some stability during this period where there is no permanent leader."
In his seven years at Washington State, Moos led the effort to secure a 10-year, $35 million marketing rights agreement with IMG College and helped lead a $130 million addition and remodel of WSU’s football stadium. The university's dean of Pac-12 athletic directors is in charge locally as well - she was behind securing the conference's 12-year TV contract that totaled $3 billion from Fox and ESPN while also seeing an 81% increase for gifts raised by Cougar Athletic Fund donors during her time on campus. In those same six full seasons, he served as head coach (2010–2016), Cougars student-athletes earned 805 academic all-conference honors or 130 All-Conference awards totaling 45 selections over four different sports.

When Scott Moos accepted the position as University of Oregon’s Athletic Director, he was well aware that it would be his most challenging job yet. He has an extensive history in athletics administration and development with experience at all levels ranging from athletic director to private business owner. With such a diverse background, there is no doubt we will see great things coming out of this new era for UO Athletics!
Alternatively: The biggest challenge awaiting incoming Athletic Director Scott Moos? Stepping into shoes previously filled by Rob Mullens who left last month after seven years on the job--but not before securing sizeable donations or leading capacity projects like the Hayward Field renovation project which cost 200 million dollars and one year ago marked completion.
