Report: NU AD Moos tied to Pac-12 commissioner search

A lengthy list of names for the open Pac-12 commissioner post includes that of Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos.

The Mercury News in San Jose reports Moos among a number of names “to get reaction from the presidents.”

Moos played football at Washington State, where in 1972 he earned first-team All-Pac-8 honors. He worked in the conference as an athletic administrator for his alma mater as far back as 1982.

Prior to taking over the NU AD job in 2017, Moos spent the previous two decades working in the same position at Oregon (1995-2007) and Washington State (2010-2017).

While the report says the number of names is length, four are listed as those receiving initial consideration:

-Former Fox Network Group president Randy Freer who negotiated a media rights deal with the Pac-12

-Former former West Virginia athletic director and NCAA executive vice president Oliver Luck

-Former Pac-12 senior associate commissioner Gloria Nevarez

-NU AD Bill Moos

Moos’s contract with Nebraska runs through December 31, 2022.
