Colorado State Basketball Coaching Search: Jack Graham To Meet With 'A Few Candidates' Over Weekend

Colorado St. Rams athletic director Jack Graham is ready to start interviewing coaches for the basketball team's vacant head coaching position -- Tim Miles left last weekend for Nebraska -- but don't expect him to hire anyone over the weekend while he is down in New Orleans for the Final Four. Graham hopes to meet several potential candidates while down there, but just as a means to "touch base" with them, reports Kelly Lyell of the Coloradoan.

Graham, according to the Coloradoan, will maybe get 45 minutes at most with a handful of potential candidates, but the athletic director wants at least a four-hour interview to substantively know his possible future employees.

JMI Sports has been hired by Graham to create the list of candidates and then help with the interviewing process. Jeff Schemmel, brother of Colorado Rockies' radio broadcaster Jerry Schemmel, heads JMI Sports' college division and will be actively involved with Graham during this process.

Colorado St. Basketball Coaching Search: Craig Smith Named Interim Coach After Tim Miles Departs For Nebraska

The Colorado St. Rams have named assistant coach Craig Smith the interim head coach on Saturday, according to Kevin Lytle of the Rocky Mountain Collegian. Smith takes over for Tim Miles, who left the school after five seasons to take over the Nebraska Cornhuskers, a program that is looking to improve as it starts its Big Ten tenure.

Smith just completed his fifth year with the Rams after coming from Mayville State University as its head coach for three years. Mayville State was also home to Tim Miles during the mid-1990s.

The Rams will hopefully land a great hire like the one they found in December with the arrival of Jim McElwain as the football head coach.

Tim Miles Introduced As New Nebraska Basketball Coach

The Colorado St. Rams are looking for a new head basketball coach now that Tim Miles is officially the Nebraska Cornhuskers' top guy. He was introduced on Saturday afternoon. It's clear that money wasn't really at issue here, but rather the opportunity of joining a school like Nebraska, a new member of the Big Ten (via Omaha.com):

Calling the Husker job a "phenomenal opportunity," Miles said the timing of the job offer – his CSU team making the NCAA Tournament, NU's entry into the Big Ten, good facilities and a new arena coming in 2013 – was too hard to resist.

"I want a crack at the Big Ten," said Miles, who wore a black suit and a red tie he joked he'd already worn twice this week.

It appears that Miles wants to bring Ronal Coleman, his Colorado State recruiting assistant, with him but nothing has happened there yet.

On an interesting note, former Cornhusker Ndamukong Suh talked with Miles and then endorsed him for the job. Athletic director Tom Osborne must've been calling in all of his favors for this one. Can Miles deliver for the Cornhuskers, a program that had its best days in the early 1990s.

Colorado State Coach Tim Miles Visits Nebraska AD Tom Osborne, According To Report

The Colorado St. Rams appear to be at risk of losing their head coach, Tim Miles. As Brian Rosenthall of the Lincoln Star Journal is reporting, the Nebraska Cornhuskers athletic director, Tom Osborne, met with Miles Friday morning:

Mike Brohard of the Loveland Report-Herald seconded the sighting:

Rosenthal also tweeted a link to the site FlightAware, specifically flight N210PM between Lincoln and Ft. Collins. It is unclear exactly the nature or relevancy of the flight.

Coach Miles has coached the CSU basketball team for five years and engineered an impressive turnaround that resulted in an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2012.
