Lincoln, NE - Appearing on "Nebraska Sports Nightly" on the Huskers Sports Network, new Nebraska head basketball coach Tim Miles confirmed Colorado State Director of Basketball Operations Ronald Coleman will officially be joining his staff as an assistant coach.
A former standout player at Lamar University, Coleman led the Cardinals in scoring his sophomore through senior season, earning All-Sun Belt Conference honors each year.
He then became a professional basketball journeyman, spending time with the Houston Rockets, Grand Rapids (CBA), and multiple stops overseas.
It was 2005, when Coleman returned to the United States to coach high school basketball and the Chicago AAU Mac Irvin Fire. During his time in the AAU ranks, his teams would feature four McDonalds All-Americans, four Illinois Players of the Year, and 15 players that participated in the NBA Players Associated Top 100 Camp.
In addition to his work at the prep level, Coleman has trained and developed several of the world's top basketball players, most recently working with Shawn Marion of the Dallas Mavericks leading up to the franchise's 2011 NBA championship.
