Washington State will announce a search committee on Monday to find a successor for athletic director Bill Moos, who made a surprise jump to Nebraska on Sunday. The school will also use an executive search firm to aid the process and plans to name an interim AD early this week.

New Nebraska AD Bill Moos is not holding back on his praise for Mike Leach when asked about his football coach at Washington State. "He's a brilliant individual," Moos said... "He's done a remarkable job."

Bill Moos: “Believe me I have nothing to run away from, but I wholeheartedly wanted to run toward this job.”

The most obvious question related to Bill Moos' departure from Washington State: What it means for football coach Mike Leach? Leach is understood to be fiercely loyal to Moos and seemed unlikely to pursue other jobs while under his employ. Leach declined to comment Sunday afternoon and said he will address the change in leadership later this week.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

A near consensus of opinions offered during Nebraska's 24-day search suggested that the next athletic director needed to possess an understanding of the school and its fan base. Bill Moos has no apparent close ties to the university, reminiscent of the 2014 hire of football coach Mike Riley. Moos was raised in Washington and has spent his entire career in Montana, Oregon and Washington. Will be interesting to hear his take today on this topic.

Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer 

Bill Moos' decision to leave as the athletic director at Washington State for Nebraska is a direct result of growing friction between him/the WSU athletic department and university president Kirk Schulz, who arrived from Kansas State in June 2016. Moos twice asked for a contract extension and was rebuffed both times, according to multiple sources. Said one: “Kirk Schulz has been awful for athletics. Since he arrived, it has been tense and awkward and difficult.”

The reaction in the athletic director community to Bill Moos' hiring is definitely one of surprise. Most ADs expected Moos, 66, to retire at Washington State. Some think Moos is a good hire while others said the move reflects a process where Nebraska didn't get its top choices to replace Shawn Eichorst. ,
