Bill Moos has been hired by Nebraska to replace Shawn Eichorst as its athletic director, Nebraska fan site, Husker Extra reported Sunday.
Moos, 66, has been the A.D.at Washington State, his alma mater, since 2010.
Moos signed a five-year contract with Nebraska with a base salary of $1 million, plus incentives.
Green said the school considered "very competitive, tremendously gifted pool of candidates". Before that he held the same position at OR from 1995-2007.
"To lead one of the most storied and successful athletic programs in the nation is a true honor", Moos said.
The Seattle Times has confirmed this information independently through a source Sunday. He made his name in the Pac-12 as the athletic director at OR from 1995-2007 before he announced his retirement.
Bill Moos was responsible for turning around the football program at Washington State and making significant upgrades to the school's athletic facilities.
The first big decisions for the football program will include the future of Mike Riley, a coach who shares Pac-12 ties with Moos. He played football there, a three-year letter victor, co-captain and first-team all-conference selection.
The school wasted very little time replacing Shawn Eichorst, fired on September 21, and in Moos gets an administrator with almost two decades of experience at Power Five schools. Former Husker All-American Dave Rimington served as interim athletic director.
