UPDATE: The University of Nebraska has released a statement from its interim president, as well as a statement directly from Trev Alberts.

University of Nebraska Interim President Chris Kabourek:

“A short time ago, Trev Alberts informed me that he has accepted the athletic director position at Texas A&M, effective Friday.

I’m disappointed to see Trev leave, but I am grateful for his 15 years of service to the University of Nebraska. Both the Mavericks and the Huskers achieved great things under Trev’s leadership and we wish him and his family all the best.

We have incredible momentum in Husker Athletics thanks to the hard work and dedication of all our staff, coaches and student-athletes. We will not hit pause. As I’ve said many times, I’ve never been more excited about the future of the University of Nebraska and the opportunities we have to work together toward our vision to compete at the highest levels in all facets. I have full confidence we will find a visionary leader who will build on Trev’s great work and keep the Huskers at the forefront in this changing landscape for college athletics.

In the meantime, my immediate focus is on doing everything I can to support our student-athletes, coaches and staff. I intend to name an interim AD very soon and will quickly begin the process for a national search for our next leader.”

Athletic Director Trev Alberts:

“Earlier today, I informed Interim President Kabourek that I will be resigning my position as Director of Athletics to accept the same role at Texas A&M. I recognize that the timing of this change is not ideal, and I apologize in advance for any negative impact that it might have.

I am grateful for the 15 years that I had the privilege to serve both the University of Nebraska-Omaha and my alma mater, UNL. My family and I want to say thank you for all the special memories that we were able to create together.

Nebraska is well positioned for the evolving changes within our industry. Tough decisions will need to be made and unity of vision and high execution will be necessary, but I am confident that leadership in Nebraska will rise to the occasion.

Nebraska Athletics is full of high character, hardworking and talented staff, and coaches. It was an honor to get to partner with them as we experienced unprecedented success.”


Texas A&M confirms that Trev Alberts has been named the new AD.


Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts will take the same position at Texas A&M according to multiple reports on Wednesday morning.

Alberts started at his alma mater in July 2021 replacing Bill Moos.

Prior to the Huskers, Alberts was the athletic director at UNO.
