Yahoo Sports reporter Pete Thamel tweeted on Nov. 14 that Creighton Assistant Vice President and Associate Athletic Director Adrian Dowell is expected become the next athletic director at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
UNO has not confirmed the selection of Dowell, but the university announced an upcoming streaming news conference introducing the next AD at 2:30 p.m. (CST) on Nov. 15.
He replaces former UNO Vice Chancellor for Athletics Trev Alberts, who left the university to helm athletics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln on July 14.
Dowell has served in various capacities within Creighton University Athletics since 2014.
Prior to his arrival at Creighton, Dowell worked in athletic fundraising at West Virginia University and had a stint at the NCAA National Office working as a member of the Division I Men’s and Women’s Basketball staff (per his LinkedIn profile).
Fun fact: Dowell’s wife Stephanie played soccer for UNO from 2000 to 2003.
