Marc Boehm, who's played an administrative role within Nebraska athletics since 2003, is leaving the department. Boehm and Athletic Director Bill Moos announced the move in a joint statement Friday afternoon.
Boehm, the executive associate athletic director, joined Nebraska in 2003 with the hiring of Steve Pederson as athletic director. He stayed on through the tenures of Tom Osborne, Shawn Eichorst and for the first part of Moos' term.
He oversaw the men's and women's basketball programs for 16 years but stepped down from those duties in April after the firing of Tim Miles. He told The World-Herald at the time he was taking a step back, and Moos would be more involved in the day-to-day dealing with basketball.
Boehm said in his statement on Friday that he'll be pursuing a new opportunity.
"The past 16 years have been a dream come true, and I am very appreciative to have worked with so many talented individuals," Boehm said. "(His wife) Janelle and I would like to thank UNL and the athletic department for so many great friendships and memories."
Moos said he appreciated Boehm's "dedication to Husker athletics."
"We wish him well in his next endeavors," Moos said.
