UNO Athletic Director Trev Alberts, who was approached about the open AD job at UNL, says he is staying right where his is.
In a note to the UNO Athletic staff Wednesday, Alberts wrote:
"As most of you are likely aware, the University of Nebraska is currently engaged in a search to place an athletic director at UNL. There has been much speculation and conjecture about my interest and candidacy from local media and others. I owe you an update-
"I was contacted by the search firm to interview as part of their process, and I appreciate the opportunity. I want you to know that I have not pursued or interviewed for any job in my 8 years at UNO and I don’t intend to alter that thinking now. After some prayerful consideration, I have communicated with the search firm that I will not be a candidate for athletic director at UNL.
"We have unfinished business at UNO, and I remain committed to working as hard as possible to realizing those goals. I can’t begin to thank you enough for your commitment and passion for Maverick Athletics. I continue to be honored to serve alongside our amazing team."
