    If I'm Miles, and you're the AD, and you do what you say and I kick ass next year and win an NCAA tourney game, and you then approach me about a long term deal, I'm going to say, "Long term? Like what? Two years instead of one? So generous. Thanks, but I'm going to find a 7 year deal somewhere else and good luck with the coaching search to replace me." If I'm Moos this year, I come out PROMPTLY after the Final 4 with AT LEAST a 2 year deal if not 3. Maybe structure buyouts in such a way that I can cut ties a little more easily next year if things go south. But I bring Tim forward at a press conference and praise him effusively for the great season we had this year and how we got screwed out of an NCAA tourney appearance the team had clearly earned. What do we have instead? The good feelings that should have carried us forward into next year following one of the best regular season runs in program history have COMPLETELY dissipated. Gone away. Gone. No good will; no good feelings; no positive momentum carrying us forward into next year. None. Completely screwed the positive momentum that would have given us a foot in the door in recruiting. The way this has been handled has been a complete cluster fuck.

    Let me get this straight...

    1) By what analysis do you come to that conclusion? Industry standard is a rollover, adding a year onto the end of the contract every year, keeping coaches with a set number of years on their contract. Always. For a coach to burn 2 years off the end of a contract, then produce a very strong record and only get a one-year extension, says the same thing to recruits as it does to everyone else: his time here is done after next season. If he does well enough not to get fired, it'll be good enough to attract other offers that he'll consider before choosing one. The chances that he's back after next year seem almost miniscule. No question in my mind this situation hamstrings us on the recruiting trail. Convince me I'm wrong. 2) OK. Maybe. Next year, we'll still have, hopefully, a team full of studs. But the year after that? Guess we'll see. I have my doubts. You think 14,500 fans would show up every night to watch our 2000-2001 team? 3) By what analysis do you come to that conclusion? We're spinning our wheels for a year. We're screwing recruiting in the right here and now. We lose, at a minimum, the seniors, plus probably Roby at the end of next season. Those are spots Miles would be recruiting to fill right now. Those potential recruits are guys who won't be signing with us in November because they have no idea where Miles will be when their college careers start or who the coach here would be. Fire Miles this year, and you get moving with a roster to work with. Extend Miles and you signal to everyone this is our man (unless you have to buy him out early, which, OK, fine, so what?). This one-year extension, IMO, is the absolute worst of all possible scenarios. With all the players we for sure lose off next year's team, we're going to go into 2019-2020 giving serious minutes to walk-ons like Ross Buckendahl and Craig Wortmann. For the record, I believe Miles earned a reasonable extension with this season. I respect that there might be those who would disagree with that opinion, in which case, fine, fire him now. But, for the love of all things Holy, make a decision one way or the other -- extend for real or fire him. But don't leave us in this state of suspended animation with a coach on life support and a program teetering in the balance.

    I agree with Dean. I don't think the poll results reflect a population that really understands what they're voting on. So I'm not sure what you can make of the results, if anything. And I'm afraid I must not have been doing a very good job of explaining my position on all of this. Let me try once more: You have a coach. The money you pay him at this point isn't necessarily just about compensating him based on his performance. Part of what you're doing with extensions, etc., is nurturing the program itself. The people who are focused on the fact that a big extension now and firing him next year would mean he'd get some kind of huge, undeserved windfall, are, in my opinion, focusing on the wrong thing. That might all be true, but it's not the most important consideration. In my opinion, the people who are most worried that Miles could "hit the jackpot" by getting fired after a longer extension are leaping over dollars to save pennies. This program has a value independent of and far larger than what we're paying the coach. You have to nurture the program. Part of having a program is having a coach. You (the AD) chose not to fire the guy this year. In my opinion, given that you didn't fire him, it is untenable to not extend him generously now even if you have to fire him next year. We just got done with one of the best seasons in the modern history of the program and we needed to leverage the obvious success (finishing top 4 in conference) in order to lay groundwork for further success down the road, including on the recruiting trail. By not being decisive and swift about either terminating the coach or extending him (to a normal-length deal), Moos screwed the pooch. He basically deprived us of any opportunity to leverage the objective success we had this year and use it to pave the way for further success in the future, regardless of who the coach is. Miles has been hamstrung in recruiting ever since Shawn Eichorst decided to not extend him two years ago. I think we've seen the results of that decision playing out on NLI signing days ever since. It's to the point that, even if we have a successful run next season, make it to the dance and win a game or two, the stable is going to be basically empty for the following year. We aren't going to have the horses to compete the year after, and we're going to be right back to where we are now. Or, actually, in worse shape. Those of you whose primary focus is that you don't want to see Miles get paid one damn dime in buyout because you think his performance doesn't justify the pay he's getting? I think you're cutting off your nose to spite your face.

    Hank Bounds interview

    For anyone that missed it, there was an article in the Journal Star yesterday where they interviewed Hank Bounds. http://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/sipple/steven-m-sipple-bounds-might-rankle-some-but-his-lofty/article_471a8b4f-9085-5350-b25d-3a9000ed5ce4.html The basic premise was a quote by Bounds something like “you have to convince me why we shouldn’t compete for national championships in every sport”. Well Hank, after the debacle on the basketball front yesterday, I give you exhibit A for why we won’t be more competitive in basketball and despite your talk, we are clearly just a football school. Whether you’re a Miles supporter or not, the tepid actions by the administration show one thing; they don’t have the same commitment to basketball as football. IMO, the one year extension was a joke. It did nothing to help anyone other than possibly showing Miles just enough love that you hope he sticks around if you can’t find someone better next year. It clearly sends the message he’s on the hot seat, doesn’t help in recruiting players or hiring a new assistant coach. It provides a litany of possible excuses for next year and the following years. It also damages future recruiting classes and all but assures that we have some bad years coming up. They should have either extended him to have a total of 4 or 5 years on his deal or done nothing. Either would have done more for the program than what they did. The fact Bounds had an interview on the same day saying he expects championships is a joke. You don’t build championship programs this way. There is no way they would ever do this to the football program. Can you imagine a football coach had under 4 years on his deal here? I can’t. The actions of our AD on basketball make me realize what they think of basketball and as a die hard, long time fan, it makes he both angry and sad.

    Let me get this straight...

    Im new to this board. My first love is Nebraska Basketball. My opinion is: This was a big decision for Moos, and has a huge impact on the program. All this (extension) says to me, Moos has been and will always be a football AD. I am not an AD, nor am I tasked with with the responsibilities of an AD; however, this was not a thoughtful move. He had two options: Fire Miles/Extend him two years. I understand what Miles did this last year but i could justify a fire. I personally think he deserved a 2 year extension. But this is the worst option I could imagine for the program. How can hire a quality assistant? How can you recruit? How can you assure stability with the current staff (Lewis is an asset)? More importantly, how can you assure stability with the student athletes in the program? Im upset with Moos. He took an easy way out and as a Nebraska Basketball fan I find it to be a coward/thoughtless decision. Fire him if you dont have confidence. Find someone else .. If youre on the fence, extend him two years and fire him after next year if he doesnt meet expectations, we can afford it; we are paying two FB coaches a kings ransom. You can at least fool candidates (Hunter vacancy), recruits, current staff and players, we have program security, ... put the student athletes first... put the program first... Nevertheless, well done with Frost.

    We sure as hell didn't fold down the stretch. We got beat on a neutral court by a red hot team that made the finals. Then we got jobbed and sent on the road and played a tough close game with a team that won at Bay,or and made it to New York. We soundly beat a very good Penn Stste team right before that. We can always find reasons to be bummed but this season isn't the poster child for that

    Hank Bounds interview

    Twenty-two regular season wins and a 4th place finish in the Big Ten should have been a launching pad into recruiting for the class of 2019, the guys we'd be signing this November. The success this year should have been something we could leverage in recruiting and, frankly, in replacing any assistants who might move on. It was a ready-made sales pitch: "Hey, look at what we just did! We climbed out of the cellar and into the penthouse of one of the top basketball leagues in the nation. But we want to stay there and we need studs like you to do it. Come join us, Nebraska is on the rise!" But, a funny thing happened on the way to the forum. Before I get to that, though, let's get something straight: Don't talk to me about money. A million or two per year seems like a lot of money to some average-Joe fan making $50,000/year with overtime. The university can afford it. Extending Miles doesn't have the effect of preventing us from moving on at the end of next year if that's what needs to happen. So, don't even go there. The question is what makes sense RIGHT NOW. And the answer, in my humble opinion, is that you do whatever you can to build off this season and leverage the success we had this year in order to build more success over the longer term. We could have done that if Moos had quickly cemented an extension of 2 years or even 3. The money doesn't matter as much as the appearance. We have plenty of money. They have a war chest they can go to if and when they feel they need to axe a coach, so, again, money isn't an obstacle. It's about establishing a veneer of confidence and optimism following one of the best seasons in Husker hoops history. Take that success, act like it's a BIG FRICKIN DEAL that we're very happy about and confident about and think we're the new studs on the block about to turn the corner for real. That's how you build buzz. That's how you get recruits excited. That's how you get your foot in the door with guys who might not have given you a second look in years past. And you do that by confidently and loudly extending your coach at the end of such a season (and if it doesn't work out, hey, you just fire him at the end of the next season and it's just money, which you have plenty of.) But, instead of allowing the program to build off this year's success, Moos -- pick your metaphor -- he crapped the bed, he screwed the pooch, whatever. We're now virtually assured of having to go through a coaching change in March or April of next year and we're going to have shit for a roster when we do it. Thanks a lot, Bill.

    I thought the choices were either: fire Miles or extend him right away to stabilize the program for the next year. I had no idea there was a third option: hem and haw and let the program blow in the wind. It has been hard not to feel like the fans care more than the administration the last 2 decades.

    I understand where you are coming from and I am not disagreeing or disparaging your opinion. But....for me, I am not OK with Moos putting all of his attention on football. I choose basketball over football all day long and from my point of view he didn't just not give it the attention it deserved, he went out of his way and hurt the program going forward whoever ends up coaching the team two years from now.

    Let me get this straight...

    Here's the thing -- I think 2018-19 is only another do-or-die year because that's what the narrative became after the season. Rewind six-ish weeks. Selection Sunday just happened and we were left out, but Bill Moos had spent the last week calling everyone in his phone to tell them how awesome Nebrasketball is. We're sitting at 22-10, which by most standards (especially in Nebraska) is a good season. We had a double-bye in the Big Ten Tournament, and yes, we lost to Michigan, but so did a couple really good teams, so while that sucks, it's not like we're not in good company. And the NIT may have inexplicably just crapped on us, but it's a team we played once already to start the season and jumped out to a 20-point lead at halftime so a win isn't impossible. Let's say that, at that point, the AD announces that despite what the committee decided, this was a really good season and we believe we're heading the right direction (because dang it, everyone who ever met Bill Moos in a bar once at a Final Four has heard from him this week about how great this team is and why we deserved to be in the tourney), and so with that in mind, we're looking forward to building on this year's success and taking the next step in 2018-19 with Tim Miles, who has received a 2-year extension. Could he still fire Miles if next year goes poorly? Sure. But does it also highlight the good things about this season (I can think of at least 22 of them right off the bat...) and give us a little momentum in the offseason? Yep. Maybe we still lose in Starkville, but maybe everyone isn't so pissed off when they go, knowing that at least their administration thinks they accomplished something. Or maybe we even say this conversation and announcement all happens after Moos and Miles met the first time...probably still works out OK. Instead, we got a whole bunch of silence, a ton of rumors (some of which may or may not be true, but it plants speculation regardless), and now a pall over what could have been a pretty important offseason with a coach who now looks like a lame duck and an AD who looks like he doesn't believe in his coach. All this so he could weigh out whether to fire a guy who just got a school record for conference wins and placed 4th in the Big Ten? Wait on it a year. If we suck, call your coach of choice and offer him a boatload of money then, and we're really no worse for it. If we win, great, we've got a winner. But this do-or-die narrative was cosigned, if not created, by the administration's lack of support and decisive action at the appropriate time. The ultimatum season didn't need to happen. Maybe Shawn Eichorst painted Bill Moos into a corner, but Moos turned around and pooped in it. He (and his staff) had the opportunity to write their own narrative and this is what they chose. I think that's certainly worthy of criticism, because I think all this could have all been avoided with some competent PR, and instead, we're treated to a doom-and-gloom offseason and a pressure cooker inside PBA next year.

    When they announced the one-year extension, my son sent me a text that said, "It's like the university doesn't want to be good at basketball." You are correct. It doesn't matter how much confidence Moos has in Miles behind the scenes. This has been handled terribly out in public.

    First post here and this is a general post for all these Tim Miles extension threads. When did 22-11 overall and 13-5 in the conference become not good enough for Husker fans? Sure our schedule was a little on the easier side this year, and it would have been nice to see a better finish in the conference tournament and NIT. I get the impression from reading these boards that some people forget this was a historic season for the team. Yeah it's crazy that making the NIT and bowing out game 1 is historic but that's the sad state of affairs of Husker hoops. A one year extension is a massive setback to any progress that's been made in this program over Miles' tenure. Two postseason appearances and a program that is finally able to attract talent, regardless of whether through transfer or recruiting. It just feels as if all that has now been thrown out the door just to leave us in limbo for a year with a lame duck coach. I just feel this year was a crossroads year for his contract. Either he's your guy and you extend him AT LEAST 2 years to let him keep the ball rolling, or you decide he's not your guy and move on. This just feels like a situation where Bill Moos got this completely wrong and we're the ones to suffer.

    The attitude on this board has rapidly digressed in the past week. I would like to do something to lift everyone's spirits. Music always seems to do it, so does steak. Combine the two, and we're talking nirvana. Here's what's up: Post the music video you feel best describes Husker Men's Basketball. It's that simple. The winner will be determined by how many "like" votes he or she receives. "Down" arrows won't be counted. In case of a tie, I will make the final decision. Prize package is 2 Nebraska Star ribeyes. Or if you like a little less fat, 2 NY Strips. If the winner is out of state, I'll ship them to you. Good Luck and good eating!

    Let's talk about that tweet they sent out yesterday. It looks like everyone is there, working hard. They showed a ton of JPJ, Cope and Roby. I don't know it gave me hope that maybe just maybe all our doubts, doomsday fears, negative bs we've been feeling the past few weeks isn't as bad as we thought. Maybe, these young guns like playing together and are bought in. Maybe they are ready to take the next step, because they came so close last. Yes, we need a new recruiting coordinator/assistant coach that can bring in talent. The X-Man decommitment sucks. But I remain hopeful until it all blows up in my face that we could have another good year next year.

    See, this is precisely the problem I have with the AD decisions on Miles the last 3 years. How's a guy supposed to build something when you basically send him the signal that he's coaching for his job every year? You think the decisions he would make as a coach would be different if he thought his position would be secure than if he thought, hey, this could be it? Let me ask you this: If Deverell Biggs was on this year's team, would he get booted off in January? Turns out that was best for the long-term health of the team. But if you're coaching for your job and have to win right now, does the coach make a different call there?

    Moos doesn't need a full year. He had that already. The guy was hired in the middle of October and didn't attend a game until Wisconsin in January. I look at that and think this guy just ignored the second highest revenue generating program for 3 months. That's some great AD-ing there. By the way, Frost was hired two weeks before the Kansas game and Moos couldn't drag himself to that. What it boils down to is that any of us could have been the AD to hire Frost as long as we let the puppeteers pull the strings and everyone behind the scenes do the legwork like Moos did. If Moos was a real AD he would have been at the biggest home game in years, especially since the football staff was already back at UCF. Everything about the way he handled basketball the past month stinks whether it be from not making Kenya an offer he couldn't refuse to stay and keep recruiting up or dragging the extension out over a month only to make it for a year. To anyone with a brain this seems like the puppeteers are pulling the strings again and they couldn't fire Miles after 22 wins so they decided to do the best they can to make it an impossible situation for future success.

    Struggle understanding the 1-year deal, but whatever. Moos was in an awkward position. He's going to be criticized no matter what. Don't think Miles leaves for another school. Even with a good year (NCAA bid and win) next year, that brings his tenure here up to mediocre on the surface. No other blue blood is coming in offering $2.5MM+ for a guy who is barely over .500. And if he does that...that makes two years in a row where we don't suck. I think that's a big thing the administration is looking for. Can we sustain anything? Have we built anything? Through 6 years, the answers to those questions are...no. IMO, I think the admin wants to see a foundation built. Some stability. Some consistency. They don't want simply a flash in the pan year every 4-5 years. Should Miles be successful next year, that's two in a row and gives the appearance there is some substance there. Personally, I don't see it ending well. And thought that before and after the extension debate. I think Copeland is gone. Even with Roby and Palmer back....that leaves us incredibly thin in the front court. Jordy isn't good and Roby is terrific. But one good player to man 80 minutes of frontcourt time a game isn't a good thing. And we essentially stopped recruiting this class in January and only hope would be a grad transfer (whom we haven't heard about us even going for from a big man perspective yet). Coupled with the lack of front court depth, we still aren't a great shooting team. Never thought, despite the success, we were a great team this last year. We were talented, but felt too often the sum was less than the individual parts, even in our wins. And the fact that as of this point, we will be a less talented team than last year, coupled with a corrected Big 10 and I don't feel great about us doing great things. Don't think the contact extension conversation applies to 2018-2019. It will the years following due to recruiting high school talent.

    Doom and gloom seems to proliferate here. Tim Miles is the NU BB Coach, let’s get behind him and the returning players for the upcoming season. The future could include more transfers, graduate and undergraduate, to boost the roster. Roby won’t be NBA ready after next year unless he takes a giant leap forward. I hope he can play the 4 since he is overmatched by big centers. Allen May make a significant jump and be a reliable scoring guard. Much depends on Palmer and Copeland.

    Miles has never been an assistant coach in his life. He has been a head coach his entire adult life. He has been successful at building programs. He's not at the end of his career. He's employable. If we make the assumption that after a year he flames out and is fired it's very likely that he will be hired within a year for 3+ years. If you take that into consideration then extending him multiple years is not paying him 2+ million per year for x years; it's extending him for 2+ million minus what another school pays him. At the moment we're talking about handicapping Miles' ability to hire a good assistant and to recruit, which is critical. For a University that seems to pride itself on being clean in recruiting this is one way to invest in recruiting above board. If Miles isn't your guy, fine; why would you want to put the next guy at a starting disadvantage?

    Let me get this straight...

    All of the below, just my opinion: The 1 year contract extension looks bad. Now, who knows what was going on behind closed doors with Miles' agent and university representatives. Who knows how honest everyone is with each other about the situation and how they're leaning during negotiations? If they could be, and I was Miles, I would ask to extend the contract 2-3 more years, but reduce the buyout by 1/2 per month or 2/3 per month were he to be terminated. Essentially the university would owe the same total amount of compensation, but there's more of a chance of an appearance of commitment (both sides could even "sell" it as such) and it makes it easier to hire an assistant and recruit ... or at least maximizes the chances of success in those areas. I think what happened is Moos went looking to see who was interested and didn't get a lot of positive feedback regarding interest OR felt he didn't have an adequate amount of time to sell the job to anyone. He's probably leaning toward terminating Miles after next year, so he makes the fiscally prudent move by only extending a year. It just seems like all parties could've gotten together better and "sold" this whole thing better to where it doesn't at least appear to be such a gap in commitment between the two parties. As it stands, it has all the appearances of Miles being a "lame duck." That's never a good look. Again, just my opinions ...

    1) won't effect recruiting as Miles is still under a 3 year contact with the possibility to extend it if can finally have back to back good seasons for a change 2) won't have any effect on attendance. I doubt people will not show up cause Miles only got a 1 year extension 3) didn't set the program back at all. If Miles is the right coach, he should be able to capitalize on our success this year. If not, then it's time to look for another coach. He has had enough time to prove it and so far, he hasn't.

    "Easily"? Are u nuts. There is no recovery. We're a year out from knowing who our coach will be, and we can even start recruiting. The cupboard will be completely bare for Miles'' successor. We'll be going thru then"start from scratch" phase once again.

    I want to throw this question out here because I want to see if I am the only one that is wondering this? And heck I haven't been down arrowed or gotten into it with anybody in a long time, and the weather sucks and I don't real feel that great so maybe I am just a bit testy right now. Anyhue, I don't want to throw a high school senior under the bus ( but it might seem like it) but why hasn't anybody questioned X-Man not having a bigger commitement to us than just with a single assistant coach? We talk about all the positives that we feel this school and program has: New age workout facilities, beautiful new arena, sold out crowds, a very good education awaiting, all the help one would need to get that education, playing time, power 5 conference, chance to help change a program, top of the line weight rooms, food services... the list goes on and he bails within 24 hours of an assistant coach leaving. So he was only coming here because of Kenya. I don't know it just kind of sounds so shallow to me. And yes that is just my opinion. I do work with kids all day everyday so I do know how they have changed over the years, I just feel that most kids that I know or have taught would pick a school for more than just an assistant coach. You know like a coach and the school mascot. Or that they have soft serve ice cream at lunch and dinner and it is all you can eat. And yes I know it is all about relationships now, that is how I teach, but it still just seems very shallow.

    The problem is that it doesn’t have to be a “support one over the other”. I can be a fan of Moos and still believe that he’s handled this poorly. Part of the job as an AD is to do what it takes to support your team, help them win games and achieve success. On the surface, I don’t know how anyone can say that what’s going on right now is doing those things.
