Coleman and NU to go seperate ways

Nebraska will grant Marshalltown power forward Keith Coleman his release. The Keith Coleman rebuilding project has begun.

Lincoln, NE - New Nebraska head basketball coach Tim Miles has begun the rebuilding process. That process did not include junior college power forward Keith Coleman.

After signing a National Letter of Intent with the Huskers back in the fall, Coleman and Miles talked on Tuesday according to the Times-Republican. The verdict - to each go their "separate ways."

Big Red Report tried to reach Coleman before and after the news broke, but he has not been available for comment.

The nation's No. 22 center in 2011, Coleman averaged eight points and seven rebounds a game in his first year at Marshalltown Community College (IA). He was a honorable mention pick in NJCAA Division I Region XI.

"(Miles) was a straight-shooter in the sense of he just wanted to see where Keith was at. Once Keith explained to him where he was at, he was very understanding. Nobody wanted to waste anybody's time in this whole thing," Marshalltown head coach Brynjar Brynjarsson told the Times-Republican.

It still remains to be seen if junior college products Jerran Young and Fahro Alihodzic also are in Miles plan.
