The compensation is overseen by UNL and NU system administrators and is merely reported to the regents.

Moos, the former athletic director at Washington State, has hired Nebraska-bred Scott Frost as the Huskers' football coach; former Husker player Will Bolt as baseball coach; and Fred Hoiberg, a former Iowa State and Chicago Bulls head coach, to lead the men's basketball program. 

Moos also recently hired Lisa Johnson from the University of Idaho as coach of the Husker women’s golf program.

The regents didn’t talk about Moos’ compensation at their meeting Friday. Regents Chairman Tim Clare of Lincoln said through a text: “I’m excited about where our athletic department is headed under Bill’s leadership.”

Moos didn’t respond Friday afternoon to a text and a phone call.

The contract calls for $50,000 raises annually through 2022. Moos also has a shot at bonuses for strong performance.
