Multiple sources are stating that Colorado State head coach Tim Miles will be introduced as the next head coach of Nebraska men’s basketball.
If this the hire made by Tom Osborne and Mark Boehm, it’s without a doubt a mediocre at best.
The timing of this news is terrible considering that Ohio’s John Groce has not given Nebraska an answer, and there’s been no door-slam on any potential offer by former Creighton and current Oregon head coach Dana Altman.
Miles’ numbers aren’t anything worth fawning over. He recently finished his fifth year in Fort Collins, currently holding a 71-88 record with the Rams. He’s gone 28-50 in Mountain West Conference play over that half decade.
He made the CBI and NIT before the Rams made the NCAA tournament this year before falling to Murray State in their first game.
Miles has no postseason wins at CSU, and went winless in conference play (0-16) during his first year with a roster very similar to what he would inherit in Lincoln.
They view Miles as the person Nebraska just fired (Doc Sadler) in different clothes, and his potential hiring as a spinning of the wheels.
