CHICAGO — Nebraska softball coach Rhonda Revelle remains on leave as NU continues its investigation into her treatment of current and recently departed players during the 2019 season.
NU Athletic Director Bill Moos said the school plans “to get everything buckled up here shortly” and arrive at a decision on Revelle’s future.
“We’ve got people both internally and externally looking at things that may have been a concern,” Moos said Thursday at Big Ten media days. “I don’t like to break up the furniture unless I know there may be an issue. I’m not sure of that at this point.”
Moos said the concerns about Revelle came up after Revelle accompanied Moos on the Husker Nation tour at the end of May after NU’s annual process of reviewing the season with “seniors and really the whole team.” Moos has done these investigations before as an A.D.
“Sometimes, retention was the outcome, sometimes it wasn’t,” Moos said. NU received enough concerns from outgoing players to “look into it a little deeper.”
Student-athletes — and the way they’re treated — have changed, said Moos, whose son Ben is an outside linebacker at California. Coaches have to have a different approach to a “millennial group.”
“Those who can’t adjust as coaches — those in our programs — are going to have problems,” Moos said.
