Providence, RI - Glen Miller, the most successful men's basketball coach in Brown basketball history, has stepped down to accept the head coaching position at the University of Pennsylvania.
In seven years at Brown, Miller coached the Bears to a school record four straight winning seasons from 2001 - 2004, twice tying the school record for victories in a season. He holds the Brown record for wins in a two-year period (34), victories in a three-year period (49) and wins in a four-year period (63), and earned 70 career wins faster than any coach in Brown basketball history (71-66).
Miller was named the insider.com Ivy League Coach of the Year after leading Brown's 2002-2003 squad to a 17-11 record, including a school-record 12-2 Ivy League mark, and a post-season appearance in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT). That same season, Miller piloted the Bears to wins in 14 of their last 16 regular season games, and guided Brown to its first ever victory at Princeton and a completion of its first ever season sweep over the Tigers.
Miller also guided three of the top four scorers in Brown basketball history, three-time first team All-Ivy guard Earl Hunt, Brown's all-time leading scorer with 2,041 points from 1999-2003; three-time first team All-Ivy guard Jason Forte, the Bears' third all-time career scorer with 1,597 career points from 2001-2005; and Alai Nuualiitia, first team All-Ivy forward, who finished as Brown's fourth all-time scorer with 1,344 career points from 1999-2003.
Miller's 13-year career record stands at 188-156, including a 93-99 mark in seven years at Brown. He also posted a 54-44 Ivy League record.
Brown Director of Athletics Michael Goldberger is in the process of forming a search committee, and a national search for Miller's replacement will begin immediately.
