Miller takes over at Penn

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – The University of Pennsylvania has
named Glen Miller as the new head men’s basketball coach, taking over for
Fran Dunphy.

After 17 years with the Quakers, Dunphy left to take the head coaching job
vacated by John Chaney at Temple.

“In conducting our search for Fran Dunphy’s successor, we set very high
standards,” said University of Pennsylvania president Amy Gutmann. “First and
foremost, the next men’s basketball coach would have to embrace the Penn ethos
of scholar athletes. That was non-negotiable. Second, our coach would have to
excel in teaching and developing both basketball techniques and skills
alongside with character. Third, we wanted a coach that would continue Penn’s
dominance in the Ivy League. In Glen Miller, we believe we have found a coach
that fits the bill.”

Miller has spent the last nine seasons at Brown University, leading them to an
National Invitational Tournament bid in 2003. He took over a Brown team that
finished 4-22 in 1998-99 and led them to a plus-.500 record in six of his
first seven seasons.

Before taking over at Brown, Miller was the head coach for six years at
Connecticut College, where he led the team to two NCAA Division III
Tournaments, finishing in the Final Four in 1999. After going 10-28 in his
first two seasons, Miller’s team’s went 85-20, including 28-1 in 1998-99.

“I am honored and thrilled to have been asked to be a part of the program here
at Penn,” said Miller. “The University has a long and storied history as an
exceptional program. I eagerly anticipate working with the strong core of
players who will be returning next season to continue that tradition of
