Ex-Penn coach Miller gets promotion at UConn


Former Penn coach Glen Miller has been promoted from director of basketball administration to assistant coach at UConn.

Miller spent 6 seasons as a UConn assistant previously before taking over as the head coach at Connecticut College (1993-1999), then Brown (1999-2006) and then at Penn (2006-2009).

"I am thrilled to be back on the court coaching and teaching and also back on the road recruiting," said Miller. " I enjoyed the past year being back here at UConn and hope that I can continue to have a positive impact in an assistant coach spot."

He takes the spot vacated by Andre LaFleur, who left UConn last month to become associate head coach at Providence.

Miller was hired last year to oversee off-the court operations of the basketball program, including academic and compliance issues in the wake of an NCAA recruiting scandal.

"I am so happy to be able to move Glen into the position of assistant coach," said head coach Jim Calhoun. "Glen is an exceptional teacher of the game of basketball and I am excited that he will be able to get back on the court for us this year."
