The Nebraska Athletic Director position is open, but Ole Miss’ Ross Bjork isn’t interested, according to a report.
Bjork told the Clarion-Ledger that he was not interested in the Nebraska job nor was he a candidate, according to Antonio Morales.
“I’m committed here. I’m committed to the University of Mississippi, Ole Miss athletics. Chancellor (Jeff) Vitter has been steadfast in his support and he’s been terrific to work with,” Bjork told the Clarion-Ledger. “We have a lot of work to do and we’re going to see that work get completed. I know we have challenges, but there’s more opportunities than challenges and we’re going to seize on those opportunities.”
The Nebraska AD job opened a couple weeks ago when Shawn Eichorst was relieved of his duties. Head coach Mike Riley is also thought to be on the hot seat.
Bjork is currently leading the Rebels’ search for a full-time head football coach, but he’s also dealing with an investigation and impending sanctions from the NCAA.
