Former Penn coach Glen Miller dances to the Final Four with UConn

I'm sure you saw the former Penn head coach plenty of times on TV Sunday, as Connecticut beat Michigan State to win the East Region at a raucous Madison Square Garden.

I'm sure Glen Miller has been to the Final Four plenty of times in his career. After all, pretty much every college basketball coach in the country makes the trip every season. 

This year, though, Miller is going for work instead of on his own. I'm sure you saw the former Penn head coach plenty of times on TV Sunday, as Connecticut beat Michigan State to win the East Region at a raucous Madison Square Garden.

Miller, of course, is Huskies head coach Kevin Ollie's top assistant. CBS' cameras were right in front of the two of them as time expired:

That wasn't all for the celebrations, though. Check out this photo from the UConn locker room that went out on one of the NCAA's Twitter feeds:

Yes, that really happened. A hat tip to one of Miller's former players, Steve Danley, for passing it along.

Danley, of course, was on the Penn team that won the Ivy League in Miller's first season at the Palestra. This is Miller's day to celebrate, though, so I promise I won't bring up how long it's been since the Quakers last made it to the NCAA tournament (on the men's side, at least).

And I promise I won't bring up what's been going on in recent days with Miller's former employer.

Really, I promise. At least, I won't if you don't. Okay?
