LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska fired seventh-year coach Tim Miles on Tuesday, and athletic director Bill Moos said he's spoken with former Iowa State and Chicago Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg to gauge his interest in the job.

They brought back four starters from a 22-win team that was fourth in the Big Ten, and the question among fans and media wasn't whether Nebraska would be in NCAA Tournament but how deep a run it could make.
