The Nebraska basketball staff has filled one of its two openings this offseason with the promotion of Gregory Eaton to director of operations where he will handle most of the day-to-day operations of the program. Eaton spent the previous five seasons as Nebraska’s video coordinator, and also worked with Huskers head coach Tim Miles at Colorado State. He replaces Teddy Owens, who accepted a high school coaching job this spring.
“I’m very happy to promote Gregory Eaton into this role,” Miles said. “He has been with me for more than six years, and I trust him as much as anyone in the world. I think he is a very good fit for the position and will do an excellent job in organizing our operations area. I’ve seen him run and expand our basketball camps as well as run our video operation and enhance it to make it more meaningful for both our players and coaches. He is a teacher at heart, but also knows what every job entails. I think he will do a terrific job.”
Eaton also had stints at Arkansas and Louisville prior to joining Miles at Colorado State.
Nebraska recently posted the job opening for its director of player relations and development. Ali Farokhmanesh most recently held that position before taking an assistant coach position at Drake in April.
