Fred Hoiberg news conference, 4.2

New Nebraska men's basketball coach Fred Hoiberg (right) and athletic director Bill Moos meet the media at an introductory news conference on April 2.

The Nebraska Athletic department has played a part in flood recovery efforts, raising money for those affected by last month's setbacks.

The Huskers are not stopping yet.

Football coach Scott Frost, basketball coach Fred Hoiberg and athletic director Bill Moos will headline a May 30 tour called Big Red Blitz. The tour will visit regions of the state directly affected by the devastating March floods, with stops in Norfolk, Fremont and at the Strategic Air Command Museum near Ashland.

"In Nebraska our greatest resource is our people," Moos said in a statement. "That has never been more evident than citizens and communities coming together with great resilience after the devastating March floods. We hope our Nebraska coaches and staff heading out to parts of the state that were affected will help play a small part in the continued healing and recovery."

Each of the Big Red Blitz stops will be approximately 90 minutes and include a short program. Fans will also have a chance to interact with other coaches and Nebraska staff during the events.
