Nebraska fires hoops coach Miles, missed NCAA Tourney again

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska fired seventh-year coach Tim Miles on Tuesday after the Cornhuskers finished 13th in the Big Ten and failed to make the NCAA Tournament for a fifth straight year.

Athletic director Bill Moos announced the firing two days after the Huskers finished a 19-17 season with an 88-72 loss to TCU in the second round of the NIT.

Much was expected of the Huskers this season. They brought back four starters from a 22-win team that was fourth in the Big Ten, and the question among fans and media wasn't whether Nebraska would be in NCAA Tournament but how deep a run it could make. But the Huskers went into a free fall in January and February, losing 11 of 13 games.
