LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska assistant men's basketball coach Phil Beckner has resigned to take a similar job at Boise State.

Coach Tim Miles announced Beckner's resignation Tuesday. Beckner was on the Cornhuskers' staff for one season after spending 2014-15 as an assistant coach in the NBA Development League. He previously worked seven seasons at Weber State in Utah.

Miles said he supports Beckner's decision ''because I want our guys to be happy.'' Miles also said moving west and being with coaches he knows well would be a good move for Beckner.

Miles also announced freshman guard Bakari Evelyn has decided to transfer. Evelyn played in 18 games and totaled 24 points and nine rebounds.
