Video: Nebraska Coach Tim Miles Used YouTube To Help Out With A Fan's Marriage Proposal

He's a matchmaker.

I'm not sure that many college basketball coaches can say that they helped a fan seal the deal with a marriage proposal lately, but Nebraska's Tim Miles certainly can. Huskers fan Joe Hawke got in contact with Miles via Twitter to ask if the head coach would record a message to help him propose to his girlfriend, a huge fan of Nebraska basketball.

Hawke had to reach out to Miles with a fake account (because his now-fiance follows his real one, of course, and she would have known what he was up to) but his plan worked perfectly:

Of course Miles obliged:

...and it worked!

Congrats to the soon-to-be Hawkes -- Joe, you totally nailed the proposal.
