Beginning his 10th season overall on the UConn staff, and his third since he returned to UConn in 2010-11, Glen Miller will assume the duties of Associate Head Coach under new Head Coach Kevin Ollie.
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. Last year, he moved into the role of fulltime assistant coach and was an integral part of practice work, game strategy, and recruiting.
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 League's 2004 Player of the Year. Following seven years in Providence, 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. 3 national ranking, and a berth in the Division III Final Four in 1998-99.
In 17 seasons as a 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 (a UConn junior), and Emma.
