Miller Interested in Brown Job; Mike Bradley Likely Leaving UConn

Little bit of news out of Storrs today. As mentioned in an earlier post, Glen Miller has expressed interest in a second tour of duty as head coach at Brown. Also, Michael Bradley almost certainly will not be staying at UConn, as the staff had hoped, and will likely be taking his talents to Western Kentucky.

Miller would seem a good choice for Brown, though he could be up against some stiff competition with Al Skinner apparently also interested (and getting some support from ESPN's Andy Katz) and a surprising amount of interest nationally for the job. Seems coaches have seen what Tommy Amaker has done at Harvard, and that other schools besides Penn and Princeton can have success despite the inherent restrictions (no scholarships, etc.), and are warming up to the idea of coaching the Ivies. Plus, now that the Virginia Tech job is filled, there's just not much more out there right now.

As for Bradley, he told me by phone today that he'll wait until after his exams end on Thursday to announce his decision. But sources say he's gone, and even Bradley told me he's "probably" not returning to Storrs.

Too bad. Never got to see the kid play a second in a Husky uniform. Heck, I barely ever even saw him play in practice.
