Report: UConn’s Glen Miller Among Candidates For Brown’s Head Coaching Job: [ProJo]

by Categorized: Uncategorized
Date:

According to a Providence Journal report, UConn assistant Glen Miller is a candidate, among numerous candidates, to take over the program at Brown, where he was head coach from 1999-2006. Miller left Brown to coach at Penn.

With Jim Calhoun turning 70 and no coach-in-waiting yet named at UConn, it would not be surprising for assistants to be looking for longer-term stability.

Here is the full story on the ProJo site.

    The ones I expect to stay are Blaney, Hobbs, Freeman, and Ollie, although Hobbs might be questionable given his head coaching experience. It’s important to position oneself for a head coaching job while relative youth is on one’s side. So I certainly don’t begrudge Miller the opportunity at Brown.

      Hi! This is my very first remark here so I just wanted to give a brief shout out and inform you I absolutely benefit from reading through your blog page posts. Can you suggest any other blogging/internet websites/discussion boards that deal with the same exact themes?

    He is a really good coach and it would be a big loss. Can he take Blaney with him?

    Nice stories but are we getting anyone to help us on the floor? Obepka coming? What the heck is his story he doesn’t know yet? Seriously what are the coaches doing? This has been sickening for so many fans and nothing, absolutely nothing comes out of Storrs. You would think Jim would at minimum say he’s coming back, I really don’t get continuing to leave the program in such a disgustingly horrific state. Open your mouths, let’s hear what UC pride you have left. Give us some information please. Thank you ha!

      Am sorry to tell the truth even if it hurts. This is the end of era. Believe it or not Uconn is dead for now.

    Honestly would rather have it this way for now than have disloyal, softies on the team. UCONN basketball is never dead. You’re dead to UCONN, your career is over not that you had one to begin with. Kemba back on campus, that’s what I’m talkin’ bout…real man, real husky of honor. His Mom in the stands long after Kemba was gone, I’m sure Papa Smurf Oriakhi will be at all our games hahaha! Good luck in the middle of nowhere bwahahaha!

    i doubt that’s Alex writing(though is the softest 6’9″ PF in the country) Happy for Coach Miller.

      This sounds like Big Alex Oriakhi (the Dad).

      The dad is not the kind of guy you would want to be next to in the trenchs.He would be P–ing in his pants begging for mercy.It is not Alex Jr’s fault he is so soft and lacking confidence.With a dad like that there is only way he could turn out.

    I wish Coach Miller all the best-my dealings with him have been nothing but terrific and a true professional. Many conversations about players from UCONN who I coach and their futures and he truly cares and knows the game as well as human behavior. As for Alex Oriaki, I would take him on my team ANYTIME. He has played a bit for me and his enthusiasm and wanting to win are contagious and he is only at the beginning of developing all of his immense talent. He does many little things well. Don’t underestimate Alex and his desire to live his dreams. Love to work him out one to one-he listens and his hoop IQ is coming along.Coach Sobel

        Howdy! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a brief holler out and inform you I absolutely benefit from reading through your website posts. Can you advise any other blogs and forums/web pages/user discussion forums that deal with the same topics?

    2. Frances Rieken

      Hey I just think that you actually have got a fantastic blog going here, I discovered it on Bing and plan on returning routinely for the info that you all are delivering.|Many thanks for making my evening a little tad much better with this terrific content

    wow, all kinds of characters on this board. in terms of the oriakhi thing – yes it will be tough to see him go, however his leaving having anything to do with the “end of an era” is simply laughable.

    1. mtnhawk53

      He was the weakest of the guys to leave, so no big deal. He really is horrible to watch by the way. Good luck in Mizzou mu mu
