Matt Davison takes on new role as Associate Athletic Director – Football

Matt Davison accepted a role in the UNL Athletic Department following the hiring of new head football coach, Scott Frost.

He’ll be working closely with the football staff and the administrative staff beginning late 2017, and is excited to help Coach Frost and AD Bill Moos.

In this role, Matt is unable to continue in a full-time capacity with Creating Captains. He’ll be available to continue to speak to schools, communities and businesses, but won’t be holding sports camps or the annual fundraiser.

We’re thrilled for Matt in this new opportunity. If you have questions, or wish to contact Creating Captains, reach out here.
