LINCOLN, Neb. — Northern Iowa assistant Ben Johnson is leaving the Panthers to join the staff of new Nebraska coach Tim Miles.

Miles, who announced Johnson’s hiring Tuesday, already has said he would bring recruiting coordinator Ron Coleman and operations director Jayden Olson with him from Colorado State. Miles still has an opening for one full-time assistant.

The 31-year-old Johnson was an assistant under Ben Jacobson at UNI for four years, serving as the Panthers’ recruiting coordinator this past season.

Johnson previously spent two years as an assistant at Texas-Pan American and was a graduate assistant at Dayton.

Johnson was a starting guard for four years at two Big Ten schools. He spent his first two seasons at Northwestern and finished at Minnesota.
