Miles climbing the ranks

Nebraska head coach Tim Miles' stock is on the rise.

Nebraska basketball has a head coach with his stock on the rise.

ESPN.com is ranking their top 50 head coach in college basketball - making the list was Tim Miles at No. 32.

Here is what was said about Miles:

"A couple of years ago, Tim Miles was the funny coach with the funny Twitter feed, the guy most likely to be sitting alone at Big Ten media day while simultaneously making fun of himself for sitting alone at Big Ten media day. (Five years ago, at Big 12 media day, that coach was Fred Hoiberg. My how things change.) Now, after taking the Cornhuskers to their first NCAA tournament since 1998 in just his second season, Miles is a bona fide rising star in the profession. He's turning Nebraska into a real program, and he has the long-run backing of the athletics department, and the elite facilities, to finish the job."

In two seasons at Nebraska, Miles has a 34-32 overall record, posting 19 wins and a NCAA tournament bid in 2014. Exceeding expectations, Miles earned Big Ten Coach of the Year.

If Miles is currently the 32nd best coach in college basketball, the Huskers must be paying him on potential. According to the USA Today, Miles salary of $1.525 million in 2013-14 was good for No. 30 in the country.
