New Nebraska AD

ESPN is reporting that Nebraska will hire Washington AD Troy Dannen to replace Trev Alberts.

and rumors on X / Twitter that Dr. Jeff Gold, current UNMC chancellor, will be announced as University of Nebraska system president.

Lots of red smoke (like the white smoke over the Vatican that indicates a new pope) emanating from both campuses – can y’all in Lincoln see well enough to get around?

They announced Dr. Gold as the priority candidate to lead the Nebraska system today. He still has to go through campus interviews and such, but it seems like pretty much a done deal.

The Regents announced Gold as their priority candidate following this morning’s closed session. A 30-day vetting period follows.
