    Horray!!!!

    (Media gave it to B-line.)

    Miles was chosen by the conference coaches as the Big Ten Coach of the Year after leading the Huskers to their best conference finish since 1998. In his second season at the helm of the Husker program, he guided Nebraska to a 19-11 record and a fourth-place finish in the Big Ten standings. The Huskers, who were picked 12th by the media in the preseason, opened conference play with a 1-5 mark, but closed with a flourish, winning 10 of their final 12 games including a pair of wins over top-10 teams (Wisconsin and at Michigan State). The 11 wins conference wins marked NU’s highest total since 1965-66 and only the second time since World War II that NU won at least 11 conference games in a year. Miles is the fourth Husker coach to win conference coach of the year and the first since Danny Nee in 1990-91. Nebraska’s other conference coaches of the year were Joe Cipriano (1966, 1978, 1980) and Moe Iba (1980, 1981), as Iba and Cipriano shared the award in 1980.

    Petteway made the 1st team in both coaches and media.  Shields was honorable mention in both.  No other Husker players honored.

     

    Which begs the question of how the media could give COTY to anyone but Miles.  

     

    They gave it to B-line but he also had the POTY in Stauskas, 2nd team in Levert and honorable mention of Robinson.  Oh well.

    I love how Beilein even said Miles was the real coach of the year.

    Of course part of being COTY is the recruiting work ahead of time to get players like that. Still, I think I'll put more stock in how his coaching peers voted.
