Gregory Eaton, who was the program’s video coordinator the past seven seasons, was named the new director of basketball ops. today. He replaces Teddy Owens, who left the program to take a high school coaching job in Florida.
Eaton and Tim Miles have some history, as Eaton was with Miles at Colorado State as his video guy in 2011-12. A graduate of Louisville, Eaton also did the video coordinator thing at Arkansas.
Here’s Tim’s quote on Eaton’s hiring:
“I’m very happy to promote Gregory Eaton into this role,” Miles said. “He has been with me for more than six years, and I trust him as much as anyone in the world. I think he is a very good fit for the position and will do an excellent job in organizing our operations area. I’ve seen him run and expand our basketball camps as well as run our video operation and enhance it to make it more meaningful for both our players and coaches. He is a teacher at heart, but also knows what every job entails. I think he will do a terrific job.”
Eaton’s job will be the day-to-day operations of the team, like travel, admin stuff, all that fun.
If you’re in the market for a new job still, Nebraska is looking for a Director of Player Relations & Development. The job is posted here.
