A few things out of the Big Ten…
Nebraska: Huskers AD Bill Moos gave a vote of support t head basketball coach Tim Miles on Wednesday night. During his monthly appearance on the “Husker Sports Nightly”, Moos said that he supports Miles, and will not make a decision regarding his future until after the season. Nebraska is currently 3-7 in the B1G, and riding a four game losing streak. Rumors have been swirling about Moos’ job lately as well, but NU president Hank Bounds and UNL chancellor Ronnie Green issued a joint statement on Tuesday confirming their support for the AD.
Penn Sate: Happy Valley hasn’t been so happy lately for Nittany Lions head coach Pat Chambers. Currently 0-9 in the Big Ten, and on a seven game skid, Chambers commented earlier this week that he “feels supported by the president and (AD) Sandy (Barbour).” He added “I feel their commitment to what we’re trying to do.” Chambers, who is signed through the 2021-22 season, is currently 120-135 in his 8th season at PSU, and has been feeling the heat lately on social media. More on Chambers from the Centre Daily Times HERE.
Northwestern: With a win over Indiana last week, Chris Collins became the fastest coach in Wildcat basketball history to get to 100 career wins. Collins is now 100-86 in his 5+ seasons in Evanston, and is the 3rd coach in program history to win 100 games. Northwestern is currently 12-9 (3-7 B1G).
Michigan: Great article from MLive.com on Wolverines assistant coach DeAndre Haynes. The 34-year old assistant (who played alongside Antonio Gates at Kent State), talks about his relationship with his players, and how he relates to them. Best quote from the story from Haynes; “If I tell them to do a drill, I should be able to do the drill.” More HERE. On another note, with a win over Ohio State on Tuesday, head coach John Beilein tied former U-M coach Johnny Orr’s mark for the most Big Ten wins by a Michigan coach (120). Beilein will look to break the record tomorrow night when his 20-1 (9-1 B1G) Wolverines head to Iowa.
