Ken Bone's job security has been discussed at length here and other places around the web, but the discussion reached athletic director Bill Moos on Monday. Moos was asked about Bone's status on Monday and as Howie Stalwick wrote, Moos didn't exactly give Bone a ringing endorsement.

Asked point-blank if he has decided if Bone will be retained or let go after this season, Moos said, "No."

He added, "At the end of the day, I’m the one responsible for making those decisions, and it’s never easy."

Asked if money alone will impact his decision on Bone’s future, Moos said, "No."
