University of Nebraska Basketball Coach Tim Miles announced the addition of Craig Smith Gregory Eaton to the Husker basketball staff. Smith comes to Nebraska after spending the last five seasons with Miles at Colorado State. Smith most recently served as the interim head coach at CSU after Miles was named head coach at Nebraska on March 24, and guided the Rams program until Larry Eustachy was hired on April 13.
“Craig is an outstanding coach,” Miles said. “I’ve hired him four times, and there’s a reason for that. I believe in the way he conducts himself. He’s an excellent recruiter and, schematically, he’s really a good tactician when it comes to basketball. Craig will be vital to help build our program at Nebraska.”
Eaton also comes to Nebraska from Colorado State, where he served as the video coordinator on Tim Miles’ staff at CSU during the 2011-12 season. He handled tape exchanges, breaking down video, recording practices and games and coordinating the team’s video library, playing a significant role in the Rams reaching the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003.
