A source close to the program says that Indiana has officially confirmed that it will name Bowling Green’s Curt Miller as its new women’s basketball coach today.
Miller is reportedly meeting with his team this morning and will be formally introduced at IU later this afternoon. Indiana has now confirmed that a press conference will take place at 4 p.m. at Cook Hall.
A source indicates that Miller was one of just two candidates IU had on campus for interviews. Wisconsin-Green Bay’s Matt Bollant, who took the vacant job at Illinois this morning, was not the other.
Ironically, Miller replaces Felisha Legette-Jack, with whom he was an assistant coach at Syracuse in the mid-1990s. Following his stint with the Orange, he spent three years as the associate head coach at Colorado State before being named the head coach at Bowling Green in 2001.
Miller took the Falcons from a 9-19 mark in his initial season to their current streak of eight straight MAC regular-season titles, which includes five NCAA Tournament appearances. He went 258-92 in 11 seasons at Bowling Green.
The Falcons’ current roster includes Bloomington South grad Kaila Hulls, the younger sister of Indiana men’s player Jordan Hulls.
