"We met about a job. I think he presents some exciting possibilities, this is a new gig for him," said Miles. "I just have to make sure I do what's right for our program and at the right time, so I can move it forward. But he's certainly passionate about Nebraska basketball."
Strickland starred at Bellevue West before scoring 1,586 points (No. 7 all-time) at Nebraska.
Strickland played nine seasons in the NBA after being undrafted in 1996. He averaged 7.5 points per game with the New York Knicks, Vancouver Grizzlies, Boston Celtics, Indiana Pacers, and Milwaukee Bucks.
According to the Omaha World Herald, Miles is still reportedly looking for a Director of Basketball Operations, a video chief, on-court assistants, and a Director of Player Personnel.
