Suh puts in a good word for incoming Nebraska basketball coach
Miles will now head up a rebuilding job in Lincoln. Athletic director Tom Osborne was impressed by the way Miles has built programs at his previous stops. But it helps when you have former players of the football program helping you get the job.
Detroit Lions defensive tackle, Ndamukong Suh reportedly was one of three Nebraska supporters that recommended Miles for the job.
Miles said he and Suh have a mutual friend who put them contact this week.
Osborne joked (we think) that he wasn't about to ignore the Detroit Lions defensive tackle's recommendation.
"When Ndamukong calls, I always listen. And if I don't listen," Osborne told the Omaha World Herald, "he'll break my neck."
I guess when you donate $2.6 million back to your alma mater, that your opinions on who gets hired around there matters.
