Chancellor Ronnie D. Green issued the following statement on the retirement of Husker Athletics Director Bill Moos:
I respect Bill Moos’ decision to retire and I want to thank him for his service to Husker Athletics and our university.
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.
Our student athletes are among the most competitive in the nation and excel in so many ways. During his time, our national leadership with the academic success of our student athletes continued with a number of new Academic All-Americans and a graduation rate second only to Northwestern in the Big Ten.
I know that Husker Nation will join me in wishing Bill and Kendra all the very best in retirement. I hope they greatly enjoy the additional time with family this will bring.
We will be launching a national search very soon, which I hope and expect will move quickly. In the meantime, I have asked Garrett Klassy, Senior Deputy Athletic Director for External Relations, to take on the role of Interim Athletic Director. Garrett has great respect within the department and our university, and I know will provide steady leadership during this period.
