Nebraska Lures Assistant Basketball Coach from Butler

Michael Lewis is leaving his assistant basketball coaching job at Butler to take the same position at Nebraska under Tim Miles.

Lewis announced the move Tuesday in a tweet in which he thanked players, coaches, staff and fans for the opportunity to work five seasons at the Indianapolis school.  The Bulldogs appeared in the NCAA Tournament three times while Lewis was on the staff.

Lewis replaces Phil Beckner, who resigned three weeks ago to take an assistant’s job at Boise State.
