From 2009 to 2010 Moglia served as Executive Advisor to the Head Football Coach at the University of Nebraska, Bo Pelini. Moglia put in 90-hour weeks, attending every practice, game and everything in between. His knowledge of business and his love for football helped him connect with the player athletes and his advice for Life After Football (LAF) helped the players understand the importance of not only their athletic performance on the field, but also their academic performance off the field as well.
In his two seasons at Nebraska, the Cornhuskers won two Big 12 North championships and played in the Holiday Bowl each season. In 2010, Cornhusker football student-athletes elected Moglia to receive Nebraska's prestigious U.S. Grant Sharp Admiral's Trophy for Leadership and Service.
Moglia spent one year coaching the Omaha Nighthawks in the third year of the United Football League's (UFL) existence. Moglia's team led the UFL in passing offense, sacks, tackles-for-loss, punt returns and blocked kicks. Also, the Nighthawks produced the 2011 UFL Defensive Player of the Year, Stuart Schweigert. Moglia joined an elite roster of UFL head coaches including Dennis Green, Jim Fassel, Marty Schottenheimer and Jerry Glanville.
