No Nebraska basketball players will have a more important assist this season than the one their coach achieved this week.
Huskers coach Tim Miles helped an avid Nebraska fan propose to his girlfriend.
When 32-year-old Joe Haack decided he was ready to pop the question to his girlfriend Theresa Conradt earlier this month, he tweeted Miles to see if the Nebraska coach would be willing to make a short personalized video. Haack did so from a newly created Twitter alias because he was afraid his girlfriend would spot the message otherwise.
Miles quickly agreed and not long afterward Haack had the video he wanted. In the video, Miles thanked Conradt for being a fan, referenced their first date and told her Haack was going to be asking her an important question.
Haack played the video for Conradt over a meal at the site of her first date. Not long afterward, he tweeted Miles with news of her answer.
The only person as excited as Haack and Conradt was Miles. Responded the Nebraska coach in all caps, "CONGRATS TO BOTH OF YOU."
