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.
