Nebraska basketball will have a new assistant coach for the 2022-23 season, the program officially announced on Wednesday.

According to the release, Nebraska is adding Ernie Zeigler to the program as an assistant coach for Fred Hoiberg. Zeigler’s coaching experience spans two decades, including a head coaching stop at Central Michigan from 2007-12.

Most recently, Zeigler spent 2016-22 as an assistant coach at Mississippi State under Ben Howland.

“When I began looking at candidates, Ernie checked all the boxes that we were looking for,” Hoiberg said. “He has a proven track record in player development and has helped build several successful programs in power conferences. He also has the experience of running his own program for several years. Ernie is also an outstanding recruiter who has extensive ties in the Big Ten region. I think he is a good fit with staff we have in place, and I am excited to have him join our program.”
