It didn't take long for Butler University Vice President and Director of Athletics Barry Collierto identify Brandon Miller as the next head coach of the basketball program.
Miller was hired by Brad Stevens in April to be an assistant coach for the Bulldogs. Miller, a 2003 Butler grad, work for the Bulldogs previously in their 2007-2008 season. He left Butler go to Ohio State where he stayed for six years. Last season he was an assistant coach at the University of Illinois before coming back to his alma mater earlier this spring.
"I am confident that Brandon will carry on the Butler University basketball tradition of excellence, especially as we make the transition to the Big East Athletic Conference," said Collier. "With Brandon's leadership, Butler is well positioned to expand upon the success of the last few years."
A native of New Castle, Miller earned a bachelor's degree from Butler in 2003. His appointment as head basketball coach is effective immediately.
