According to the Lincoln Journal Star, Phil Beckner — a Nebraska Cornhuskers assistant coach — will be leaving the men’s basketball team to take the same role with the Boise State Broncos team. Beckner was only a member of Tim Miles’ staff for just one season.
“It’s not like there’s some negative deal or anything like that at all,” Beckner told the paper. “I thought the opportunity was the right time and the right fit.”
“I’ve known those guys being out west and what not,” Beckner added.
The paper said he’s taking a pay cut with this move. They also report that Boise State called him last week — even though he wasn’t seeking another job, he says.
“I’ve been grateful for the opportunity Coach Miles gave me,” Beckner stated. “But at the end of the day, this was the right time.”
Prior to taking the Blue role, he spent seven seasons with Weber State. He began as a Director of Basketball Operations for two-years, before being an assistant coach for the next five-years.
