One of the most decorated players in Nebraska football history is leaving UNO to run Nebraska’s athletic program.
Trev Alberts will replace Bill Moos as the new Nebraska athletic director. Moos retired from the position on June 30th. Alberts was introduced as the new Nebraska athletic director Wednesday morning during a press conference held at Memorial Stadium. Alberts will officially take over the AD’s office July 19th.
UNL Chancellor Ronnie Green, who hired Alberts after a 2 1/2 week search, shared at the press conference some of the attributes displayed by Alberts which made him the right man for the job
When Alberts was introduced as Nebraska’s AD, the Husker football great became emotional as he shared how much the University of Nebraska means to him.
University of Nebraska President Ted Carter said Alberts “understands the special role that Husker athletics plays in the state.”
In 1993, Alberts posted one of the best defensive seasons in Nebraska football history when he had 96 tackles, 21 for loss and 15 sacks as a rush end. He was named a first-team All-American, the Butkus Award winner and an Academic All-American. He saved his best NU performance for last, when he posted three sacks with a dislocated elbow in an 18-16 loss to Florida State in the Orange Bowl.
