NU Follows Up New AD Hire by Extending Amy Williams’ Contract

Nebraska didn’t wait long to shore up its athletic department after last week’s surprising departure of Trev Alberts. 

NU hired Washington AD Troy Dannen Wednesday to replace Alberts, then announced a contract extension for women’s basketball coach Amy Williams. 

Dannen had been the Huskies athletic director for less than a year, but previously was in that role for eight years at Tulane and was the AD at his alma mater, Northern Iowa.  His hiring was praised by football coach Matt Rhule. 

The new contract for Williams extends through the 2028-29 season.  It will pay the Husker coach $950,000 next season, with annual increases each following year.
