Nebraska Cornhuskers head men’s basketball coach Tim Miles has agreed to a one-year contract extension that will keep him in Lincoln through the 2019-20 season. Lee Barfknecht of the Omaha World-Herald reported the agreement. Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
In three seasons with the Huskers, Miles is 47-49 (21-33 Big Ten) and led the team to a spot in the NCAA Tournament in 2014. There, No. 11 Nebraska lost to No. 6 Baylor in the Round of 64.
Next year, however, things could be looking up for Nebraska. Four-star recruits Ed Morrow Jr. and Glynn Watson are set to join the roster, which should help ease the departure of leading scorer Terran Petteway. Considering how Nebraska went 13-18 (5-13 Big Ten) last season and finished ahead of only Penn State and Rutgers in the conference standings, any little bit helps.
Just the same, the university obviously thinks Miles has done a good enough job with the program to warrant an extension, and fans should head into the upcoming season with their collective eyes forward.
