Below is a great read about coach Tim Miles. It is long so I added a link to the whole story.
It’s been two weekends now since Nebraska held a press conference announcing Tim Miles as its new head basketball coach ... two weeks for Miles to fly so fast that even his new assistant coaches have seen mostly just a blur of the man who hired them because he’s racing through a hotel lobby at the Final Four or sprint-walking outside with his cell phone pressed against his ear, setting up private interviews to fill that final position on his new coaching staff.
