Former Nebraska men's basketball coach Tim Miles will be on the sideline in a new role this season.

Miles will work for Fox Sports as a television analyst for the network's college basketball broadcasts, the network announced Thursday.

It will be Miles' first stint behind the mic after 24 years as a college head coach. Miles was fired last season after seven seasons at Nebraska.

Miles' quick wit and colorful personality would seem to be a perfect fit for television. While the coach has expressed interest in continuing to coach, an opportunity to move on from Nebraska didn't present itself this offseason.

Miles could be on a path similar to that of Georgia coach Tom Crean. After being fired by Indiana in 2017, Crean spent one season working in television before being hired by the Bulldogs.
