Brandon Miller to Take Over at Butler

Butler announced this afternoon that Brandon Miller has been hired to replaced Brad Stevens, who shocked the college basketball world by taking the Boston Celtics’ vacant head coaching position earlier this week.

Butler once again went in-house for this hire, as the 34 year old Miller graduated from the school in 2003. He’s the fourth straight Butler head coach to be promote from an assistant’s position.

Miller has also spent time on the staffs at Ohio State and Illinois.

From the school’s release:

“I am confident that Brandon will carry on the Butler University basketball tradition of excellence, especially as we make the transition to the Big East Athletic Conference,” Butler AD Barry Collier said. “As a player, assistant coach, and person, Brandon has exemplified the Butler Way and brings a blend of energy, talent and integrity to this role. With Brandon’s leadership, Butler is well positioned to expand upon the success of the last few years.”
