University of Nebraska men’s basketball coach Tim Miles made the following statement Tuesday morning on the status of Deverell Biggs:
“I’ve made the very difficult decision that Deverell Biggs will no longer be a part of our basketball program. We have consistently emphasized accountability for our student-athletes on the court, off the court and in the classroom. Individual accountability affects the entire group. As a basketball program, we are moving forward and perhaps a fresh start for Deverell may be beneficial to him as well.
Deverell will still have access to all of our academic resources to maintain his eligibility and progress toward graduation. Deverell is good young man. My hope is that he remains at Nebraska and finishes his classes this spring and finds another program where he can flourish. We wish him all the best.”
Biggs appeared in 15 games for the Huskers this season, averaging 9.9 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists per contest after redshirting in 2012-13.
