Like that, the temperature has been upped on Nebraska Head Football Coach Scott Frost
Citing that this was now 'apparently the right time', Bill Moos has announced his retirement from his Athletic Director post at the University of Nebraska, effective June 30. According to Parker Gabriel at the Lincoln Journal Star, Moos decision comes after 'extensive consideration and conversations'. In a phone conversation Moos noted the impact of the pandemic and decided to get out - and feeling blessed after a 40-year career in college athletic administration. Moos has not been the most popular resident of Nebraska since taking the job in 2017. His first move was hiring Scott Frost to a seven-year/$35 million contract that has since been extended through 2026. A legend as a quarterback, Frost has been a spectacular failure thus far as head football coach, going 12-20 over his first three seasons. More recently, veteran coach Fred Hoiberg was brought on to lead the men's basketball program. During Hoiberg's two season's Nebraska has cemented its status as by far the worst basketball program in the Big Ten. Moos, 70, supposedly made it clear recently that he had no intentions of stepping down before the expiration of his contract that was effective Dec. 31, 2022. "I have every intention of fulfilling the contract," he said. It seems Moos has been pushed out the door, if not downright fired.
