Nebraska’s new leader: Cornhuskers hire Bill Moos as athletic director

Nebraska football is the No. 1 topic in Big Red Rising every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Huskers sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Huskers football, recruiting, basketball and more.

A new leader in town

Nebraska officially has its new athletic director. The Huskers introduced former Washington State AD Bill Moos as the new man in charge of Nebraska athletics on Sunday. It’s a job that has been on his radar for 25 years, and Huskers fans now hope he can right the ship.

Coach Mike Riley said he’s familiar with Moos and is looking forward to working with him.

Get to know him

What should you know about Moos? There’s a few things that any Huskers fan should know. He also shared quite a bit more about himself at his introductory press conference Sunday afternoon.

The wrong kind of history

Nebraska fans witnessed history in the Huskers’ 56-14 loss to Ohio State Saturday evening. It just wasn’t the right kind of history for the Huskers fan base.

Where do the Huskers go from here? That’s a great question to ponder.

Youth in a new scheme

The Buckeyes exposed the weaknesses on Nebraska’s defense, but defensive coordinator Bob Diaco sees it as youthful errors. For him, the players are improving and learning on the fly every week.

Status quo

There was no change for the Huskers in the latest Land of 10 Power Poll, but that’s probably appropriate. After the loss to Ohio State, there wasn’t much room to move.
