OMAHA, Neb. – Nebraska has hired Colorado State’s Tim Miles as its new basketball coach.
Colorado State athletic director Jack Graham announced Friday night that Miles had resigned so he could take the job with the Cornhuskers. Miles, who toured Nebraska’s facilities on Friday morning, is expected to be introduced at a news conference in Lincoln on Saturday.
The 45-year-old Miles, who replaces Doc Sadler, just finished his fifth year at Colorado State. This season he coached the Rams to a 20-12 record and their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2003. They lost to Murray State 58-41 in their tournament opener.
Miles will take over a struggling Nebraska program that hasn’t won a share of a conference championship since 1950 or played in the NCAA tournament since 1998.
