CINCINNATI (AP) Cincinnati has hired UNC Greensboro coach Wes Miller to replace the fired John Brannen.
Miller, regarded as one of the top young coaches in college basketball, won 185 games in 10 seasons at UNC Greensboro. Over the last five years, the Spartans have five-straight 20-win seasons, two NCAA Tournament appearances, two NIT appearances and two Southern Conference tournament championships.
"He is an extremely dynamic coach and mentor who impressed me with his drive, focus and attention to detail," Cincinnati athletic director John Cunningham said. "He's a proven winner as a head coach and was able to rebuild a program and lead a remarkable turnaround at UNCG over the last decade. We cast a very wide net in this search and Wes emerged as the right coach to lead the Bearcats into the future."
