Tim Miles won’t be leaving Nebraska for Tennessee. This is according a report from Bleacher Report’s Jason King.
No idea who the next Tennessee coach will be – but I know who it won’t be: Tim Miles. UT officials have been told Miles isnt leaving Lincoln

Miles was already a long shot to come to Tennessee. He’s coming off a season in which he led Nebraska to their first NCAA tournament appearance since 1998. Miles was also named the Big 10 coach of the year this past season.
On top of his recent success, Miles is treated like royalty in Lincoln. While that would certainly be attainable in Knoxville, why leave when you already have it?
Miles has a great thing going in Nebraska. There’s absolutely no need for him to leave and enter a tense situation at Tennessee.
Tim Miles would’ve been a great fit for the Vols, but unfortunately they’ll have to look elsewhere.
