Nebraska’s New Athletic Director Has Message For Fans

Trev Alberts is the new athletic director for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, rejoining his alma mater. In one of his first acts on the job, he’s issuing a message to Husker Nation.

Taking to Twitter for the first time on his newly-created account (@TrevAlberts), Alberts quoted his former coach Tom Osborne in accepting the service the school wants him to provide. He said he was honored to begin working with Nebraska student-athletes and said he’s ready to start.

“As Coach Osborne once told me, a life of service will be far more rewarding & fulfilling in the end,” Alberts wrote. “Today, I couldn’t be more honored to begin serving our incredible Husker student-athletes, coaches and staff. It’s about us, Husker Nation. Let’s get to work. #GBR”

Alberts will start his tenure hoping that Nebraska football won’t suffer through a fifth-straight losing season. That’s a big ask for any AD of any level of experience, but Alberts has plenty of reason to be so dedicated.

Trev Alberts was a star defensive lineman for Nebraska from 1990 to 1993, winning numerous accolades and leaving as one of the all-time Nebraska greats. He wound up going No. 5 overall to the Indianapolis Colts in the 1994 NFL Draft and his No. 34 jersey was later retired.

After a short NFL career followed by a few years in broadcasting, Alberts joined the University of Nebraska-Omaha as athletic director in 2009. He oversaw the Mavericks win five conference titles and their basketball team’s transition from Division I to Division II.

The Huskers are a very different animal though. Alberts will need more than passion and a love for the team if he wants to succeed.

But he definitely has the right attitude to get started.
