Husker Players React to Tim Miles Firing

March 26, 2019

On Tuesday afternoon, Nebraska parted ways with men’s basketball coach Tim Miles.

Unsurprisingly, Miles himself took to Twitter to share a parting message with the fans. Here is his message in it’s entirety.

Thank you to the University of Nebraska for a remarkable journey. It was a great honor to represent this University the past seven years. I am extremely proud of what we were able to accomplish during my tenure, most notably developing relationships with so many fantastic people associated with the Huskers.

A special thank you and deep gratitude to our players and parents who have been with us and supported us over the years. Thanks to our coaches, legends, alumni and to all of the support staff who interact with our program on a daily basis and made the experience one I will always cherish. 

To the fans, students and supporters who make Pinnacle Bank Arena such an incredible venue, much respect and thank you as well.

My family will always be cheering for the Huskers and look forward to seeing #Nebrasketball make history in the near future. #GBR
