Trev Alberts does not want to be candidate for Nebraska’s AD job, per report

Trev Alberts apparently does not want to return to Lincoln. Alberts, a former Husker and current athletic director at Nebraska-Omaha, has said he does not want to be considered for Nebraska’s vacant athletic director position, according to the Omaha World Herald.

Alberts sent an email to some Nebraska-Omaha staff members on Wednesday saying he has withdrew himself from consideration, according to the report.

Alberts was a popular candidate for the job among fans, former players and even reportedly some in the Nebraska administration. One report  said that the Huskers were eyeing Alberts for the AD opening and Scott Frost to take over as head football coach for Mike Riley.

It’s been a chaotic few weeks for Nebraska. It started on Sept. 16 when the Huskers lost a home game to Northern Illinois. Athletic director Shawn Eichorst was fired on Sept. 21. The university named Dave Rimington interim athletic director, but he said he does not have interest in taking the job permanently.

Alberts was one of the best Nebraska linebackers of all time, and he won the Butkus Award in 1993 before going 5th overall in the 1994 NFL Draft. He’s been the athletic director in Omaha since 2009.

If he was the Huskers’ top option, it seems like they’ll have to look elsewhere.
