Former North Carolina guard Wes Miller will be returning to the Smith Center next season -- as an opposing coach.

The Tar Heels will play UNC Greensboro -- which is coached by Miller, a member of the 2005 NCAA championship team -- for the next three seasons, the Spartans announced on their web site.

UNCG will play at UNC next season; the teams will face off at Greensboro Coliseum in 2014-15; then the Spartans will return to Chapel Hill in 2015-16.

"I am excited about the opportunity to compete against North Carolina over the next few years," Miller said in a prepared statement. "I know that our players and the entire UNCG community will be looking forward to the games. Having North Carolina return to play us at home in 2014-15 will be a tremendous moment for everyone at UNCG and the city of Greensboro. I am grateful that Coach [Roy] Williams has agreed to play."

Williams, in a prepared statement, said that if UNC can help one of its former players who is coaching at another school, then it's good for the Tar Heels' program, too: "Wes is a great young coach who did a fabulous job as a player at North Carolina and is an important part of our UNC family. We look forward to competing against his teams."
