Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos announced Tuesday a one-year contract extension for Head Men’s Basketball Coach Tim Miles. With the addition of a year to his current deal, Miles is now under contract at Nebraska through the 2020-21 season.
Miles coached Nebraska to one of the best seasons in school history in 2017-18. The Huskers finished with a 22-11 record and earned a berth to the National Invitational Tournament. Nebraska posted a 13-5 Big Ten Conference record, setting a school record for most conference victories in a season.
Miles will enter his seventh season at Nebraska in the 2018-19 season. In addition to the NIT appearance in 2018, Miles guided the Huskers to an NCAA Tournament berth in 2014.
Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos:
“Tim and his staff did an outstanding job this season with 22 wins and 13 Big Ten Conference victories. That type of performance certainly merits an extension of Tim’s contract as the leader of our men’s basketball program.
“I have been very impressed with the energy and passion Tim provides for the Nebraska men’s basketball program, as well as his commitment to his staff and the young men on our team.”
Nebraska Head Men’s Basketball Coach Tim Miles:
“We have great young guys in our program. Our spring workouts are going well, and we are excited for next season. As this past season showed, we are building in the right direction. I am appreciative of the University administration and Athletic Director Bill Moos for their support of our program.”
