Former Husker coach tabbed to run San Jose State basketball program

LINCOLN, Neb. -- A former Husker coach has found a new landing spot. Tim Miles, who coached seven seasons at Nebraska, has been named the head basketball coach at San Jose State.

Miles, who spent two seasons away from coaching after being fired by the Huskers, was officially named the head coach of the Spartans on Tuesday after word trickled out that San Jose State administration had zeroed in on him as Jean Prioleau's successor Monday.

Miles went 116-114 with three postseason trips in his seven seasons in Lincoln. He led the Huskers to the NCAA Tournament in 2013, where Nebraska fell to Baylor in the opening round.

He previously served as the head coach at Colorado State, North Dakota State, Southwest Minnesota State and Mayville State.

Most recently, Miles served as an analyst for Fox Sports and the Big Ten Network while retaining his residence in Lincoln after being fired by Nebraska.
