Dan Kendig retires after 25 years

The university’s Athletics Department issued a statement Tuesday morning announcing his retirement was “effective immediately.”

Kendig decided to retire Tuesday after he and athletic director Bill Moos met to discuss possible NCAA compliance issues in the program.

Moos said the decision was not tied to any issue involving student-athlete welfare. …

“We had a discussion of some concerns in the compliance area and upon the end of the discussion he said he would choose to retire at this point rather than get into the season a little bit, because it’s just getting started,” Moos said. “Certainly, we honored his decision. It’s an ongoing matter.” …

Moos declined to comment on specifics of possible rules violations or the degree of seriousness.

“The NCAA will establish that,” he said. …


“I have had the great fortune of coaching at Nebraska for more than two decades and have cherished every moment of that time,” Kendig said in the statement. “My greatest memories will be the opportunity to work with so many talented and high-achieving young women who have excelled in the gym, in the classroom and in the community.

“I have worked with many great people at Nebraska and developed countless life-long friendships,” he said in the statement. “I am proud of what we accomplished and have been blessed with great assistant coaches and student-athletes through the years. I want to thank the great people of Nebraska for the wonderful memories.” …

Heather Brink will serve as the Interim Head Coach for Nebraska for the 2018-19 season. An NCAA All-Around champion with the Huskers, Brink has been an assistant at Nebraska for eight seasons, including the past four as Associate Head Coach.
