OMAHA – In an email to the University of Nebraska at Omaha staff, AD Trev Alberts soundly put rumors of his defection to bed. “We have unfinished business at UNO, and I remain committed to working as hard as possible to realizing those goals.”
Alberts revealed that he was approached by the Lincoln university’s program, but declined to pursue it. The entirety of the email read:
“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.”
UNL’s search for a permanent athletic director will continue.
