Ollie, Miller to be Announced This Week

If you're wondering what the hold-up is regarding the announcement of UConn's two new assistant coaches, well ... there really is no hold-up.

Jim Calhoun told myself and Neill Ostrout of the Post two weeks ago that he expected the coaches to be named by June 22. He then told us and other reporters at the Travelers Celebrity Pro-Am last Wednesday that he hoped it could get done within the next day or two.

Well, it's still not done, but fret not ... Calhoun was being a little over-aggressive about when the announcement would come. Just Jim being Jim.

The announcements of Kevin Ollie and Glenn Miller (and we're told those will be the two hires, as if there were any further doubt) will come this week. Sooner than later, we're told.

I'll be out of commission for the next couple of days, but be sure to check out the Register's coverage. My wife is being induced into labor Tuesday morning, and we'll be welcoming our second child (and first son) into the world. Exciting times for us.

And exciting times for UConn fans as you'll be welcoming Ollie/Miller back into the "family" some time over the next few days.

And no, not that Ollie Miller ------>>>>

Dave Jr. would be good but don't overlook underused names like 'Kip' and 'Jani'

Oh, and congrats again
