Glen Miller Could Be Candidate for Brown Job

We've already seen five players leave the UConn program over the past couple of weeks. Could coaches soon be part of the exodus, as well?

UConn assistant coach Glen Miller is among a long list of coaches who have expressed interest in the Brown University head coaching position. According to the Providence Journal, Miller, current Brown interim coach T.J. Sorrentine (who I covered in high school), Rhode Island College coach Bob Walsh and former URI and Boston College head man Al Skinner are among those who are interested in the job. And those are just the local ties. Sources say there is a surprising level of national interest in the job.

Jesse Agel was fired in March after four seasons at the Bears' helm.

Miller is certainly an intriguing candidate. He coached the Bears from 1999 to 2006, winning more games (93) over a seven-year stretch than any previous coach in school history. He took Brown to the NIT in 2002-03 and posted a 54-44 Ivy League record during his tenure.

Of course, Miller did leave Brown to take over at Ivy League rival Penn in 2006, which may not have sat well with people at Brown at the time. Some of those people are still at the school. However, incoming AD Jack Hayes was not there. And perhaps this could work in Miller's favor: Hayes was associate AD at UConn from 2001-04 before leaving to take his current position as AD at Hofstra.
