UConn Men’s Basketball: Assistant Coach Glen Miller Will Not Return

The former associate head coach is no longer a part of Kevin Ollie’s staff.

Glen Miller’s second stint at UConn has come to a close as the school announced Miller will be leaving. He served five years as associate head coach for the Huskies.

Miller had been the associate head coach since Ollie became the head man, a span highlighted by the 2014 National Championship run, which gave us this wonderful GIF.

Miller was the coaching staff member responsible for working with the big men, a group which the Huskies did not recruit very successfully and also struggled to develop. He was a part of Jim Calhoun’s original coaching staff in 1986 before leaving to be head coach at Division III Connecticut College in 1993.

He led Connecticut College to the to the 1998-99 Final Four in his six seasons at the helm.

He then moved on to Brown, where he stayed for seven years, from 1999-2006. He had a record of 93-99 and made a NIT appearance in 2002-03.

Ivy League rival Penn came calling and he became head coach of the Quakers from 2006 to 2009, when he was fired after a 0-7 start to the year.

Calhoun hired him again for the 2010-11 season as the Director of Basketball Administration and he was promoted to assistant coach the next season. When Ollie took over as head coach in 2012-13, he promoted Miller to associate head coach. His time with UConn totals 14 years across two stints.

“We appreciate the countless contributions Glen has made to UConn basketball, as a player, a coach and the associate head coach,” Ollie said. “His integrity, his dedication to the program, and his commitment to our student-athletes have been outstanding and he has had a huge role in the success we’ve achieved. I wish him nothing but the best in the future.”
