Glen Miller – former Associate Head Men’s Basketball Coach at the University of Connecticut – is in his second season as full-time Associate Head Coach of Men’s Basketball at USJ in 2019-2020.
Joining the Saint Joseph staff in October 2017, Miller began working immediately alongside hall of famer Jim Calhoun on building USJ’s first-ever men’s basketball program, a program that reached the 2019 Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Championship with an all-freshman starting five.
Miller brings an extensive and highly successful coaching background to the Blue Jays. He spent 14 years on staff at the University of Connecticut, including the previous seven since returning to UConn in 2010-11 after head coaching stints at Connecticut College, Brown University and the University of Pennsylvania. Five of the last seven years on staff with the Huskies, Miller served as the Associate Head Coach under Kevin Ollie. While at UConn, he was an integral part of all practice work, game strategy, recruiting and scheduling. Miller’s primary responsibility dealt with film breakdown and evaluation of opponents.
Miller’s Division I head coaching experience began at Brown in 1999-2000, where his teams set school records for wins in a two, three, four, and five-year span, as well as most Ivy League wins in a season. He recruited and developed 10 all-conference players and the Ivy League’s 2004 Player of the Year.
Following seven years at Brown, Miller was hired as head coach of the prestigious program at Penn in 2006. He led the Quakers to the Ivy League Championship, and a NCAA Tournament berth in 2006-07, setting the school record for most Ivy League wins by a first-year coach. He spent three full years and part of a fourth as the Penn head coach before returning to UConn.
Prior to taking over at Brown, Miller enjoyed a highly-successful span as head coach at Division III Connecticut College. In six seasons, beginning in 1993, Miller led Conn. College to unprecedented heights, including a 28-1 record, a No. 1 national ranking, and a berth in the Division III Final Four in 1998-99. In 17 seasons as a college basketball head coach, Miller has compiled 233 victories.
A native of Groton where he starred at Fitch High School, Miller played for two seasons at UConn, then played two seasons for Calhoun at Northeastern. He joined Calhoun’s first staff at UConn in 1986, and worked with the Huskies for seven seasons before being named head coach at Conn College in 1993.
Born Aug. 20, 1961, Miller and his wife Yvonne reside in Bloomfield, Conn. and are the parents of four children: Tony, Genelle, Jillian, and Emma.
