Husker Hoops Assistant Reportedly Heading North

Nebraska’s men’s basketball coaching staff may be losing a member. Reports out of Minnesota are that Ben Johnson, who just finished his first season at Nebraska, will be returning to his alma mater and serving alongside newly-hired Richard Pitino on the Golden Gopher sideline. Tim Miles would not comment on the possibility that his staff might shrink. Johnson came to Nebraska after being an assistant at Northern Iowa for four years.
