The Nebraska Cornhuskers has announced that assistant coach Phil Beckner has resigned from men’s basketball coach Tim Miles’ staff. According to the Lincoln Journal Star, Beckner left the team two days ago; however, the school just announced the move today.

He’s taking a new role with the Boise State Broncos, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

“In talking with Phil, he felt that when this opportunity presented itself, he felt it was a great time and a great fit for him to make that move,” Miles said in a prepared statement. “I support him because I want our guys to be happy, I want them to be fulfilled. I think he felt moving West and being with coaches he knows well would be a good move for him. I wish him nothing but the best of luck.”

Becker was only with Miles for just one season.

Also, Miles confirmed that freshman guard Bakari Evelyn will be transferring from the program. He’ll complete the spring semester, then look for a new school.

Evelyn — whose a 6-foot-2 guard from Detroit, Michigan — played in 18 games with the Cornhuskers. He had 24 total points, nine rebounds, and four assists in 88 minutes.

He had a season-high seven points against Mississippi Valley State Devils.

“I support Bakari and his decision to transfer,” Miles added. “I appreciate his hard work for the Huskers throughout the season, and he will be granted a full release. We wish Bakari the best in his future endeavors.”
