Former Nebraska All-American linebacker and current Nebraska-Omaha Athletic Director Trev Alberts will not be a candidate for Nebraska Athletic Director.
A search firm hired by UNL Chancellor Ronnie Green and University of Nebraska President Hank Bounds contacted Alberts and asked him for an interview.
Alberts said in an e-mail to UNO staff he will not compete for the AD job at Nebraska after some “prayerful consideration.” He also said there is unfinshed business at UNO and he remains committed to working as hard as possible to realizing his goals there.
Former Nebraska athletic director Shawn Eichorst was fired on September 21. Alberts has been the Mavericks’ Athletic Director since 2009. Alberts was the winner of the Dick Butkus Award in 1993 for the Huskers as the nation’s top linebacker.
