Sources: Glen Miller returns to UConn
In a move that had been speculated in the rumor mill over the past few weeks, the Journal Inquirer is reporting that ex-Penn basketball head coach Glen Miller will be hired as the director of basketball administration at the University of Connecticut. The official announcement should come in the next day or two, the article states, meaning Miller will have gone unemployed for about five months since his firing from Penn in December of last year.
Miller is a UConn graduate who served as an assistant under Jim Calhoun from 1986 to 1993 before taking head coaching positions at Connecticut College, Brown and Penn. Calhoun is apparently looking to renew old ties, as the Journal Inquirer is also reporting that his former player (and ex-Sixer) Kevin Ollie will be named as an assistant coach.
