The UConn men's basketball team visited President Obama and the White House on Monday, May 16.
Glen Miller is in his fourth season as the Huskies’ Associate Head Coach under Head Coach Kevin Ollie. It is Miller’s 13th season overall on the UConn staff and his sixth since returning to UConn in 2010-11.
Miller rejoined Coach Jim Calhoun’s UConn staff in 2010-11 as Director of Basketball Administration following 17 years of head coaching experience at Connecticut College, Brown University, and the University of Pennsylvania. One year later, in 2011-12, he moved into the role of fulltime assistant coach and when Ollie took over as head coach in 2012-13, Miller was appointed Associate Head Coach. He has been an integral part of all practice work, game strategy, recruiting and scheduling. Miller has primary responsibility when it comes to film breakdown and evaluation of UConn opponents.
Miller’s Division I head coaching experience began at Brown in 1999-2000, where his teams set school records for wins in a two-, three-, four-, and five-year span, as well as most Ivy League wins in a season. He recruited and developed 10 all-conference players and the Ivy League’s 2004 Player of the Year.
Following seven years at Brown, Miller was hired as head coach of the prestigious program at Penn in 2006. He led the Quakers to the Ivy League Championship and an NCAA Tournament berth in 2006-07, setting the school record for most Ivy League wins by a first-year coach. He spent three full years and part of a fourth as the Penn head coach.
Previous to taking over at Brown, Miller enjoyed a highly-successful span as head coach at Division III Connecticut College. In six seasons, beginning in 1993, Miller led Conn College to unprecedented heights, including a 28-1 record, a No. 1 national ranking, and a berth in the Division III Final Four in 1998-99.
In 17 seasons as a college basketball head coach, Miller compiled 233 victories.
A native of Groton, Conn., where he starred at Fitch High School, Miller played for two seasons at UConn, then played two seasons for Calhoun at Northeastern. He joined Calhoun’s first staff at UConn in 1986 and worked with the Huskies for seven seasons before being named head coach at Conn College in 1993.
Born 8/20/1961, Miller and his wife Yvonne reside in Mansfield and are the parents of four children: Tony, Genelle, Jillian, and Emma.
