Tim Miles is the Head Coach of the University of Nebraska men’s basketball team. After graduating from the University of Mary, he signed on as the coach of NAIA’s Maryville State before joining Division II’s Southwestern Minnesota State. Finding success at both levels, he took his coaching talents to North Dakota State in 2001. During his seven seasons with the Bison, they transitioned from Division II to Division I, making the school ineligible for postseason play for five seasons. However Miles led NDSU to two shocking upsets, defeating the #12 Wisconsin in 2006 and the #8 Marquette in 2007.
After wrapping up the 2006 – 2007 season, Miles was named Head Coach at Colorado State. Struggling to find success early, by the 2011 – 2012 season he led CSU to their first NCAA Tournament since 2003 and their first at-large bid to the field since 1990. This made Miles the only active coach to take teams to the postseason at the Division I, Division II and NAIA ranks.
On March 24, 2012, Miles was named the 27th Head Coach of the University of Nebraska Huskers. In the 2013 – 2014 season, he coached Nebraska to their first Tournament appearance in 16 seasons.
Miles, and his wife, Kari, have one daughter, Ava, and one son, Gabriel.
