Add Miller to UNC's (head) coaching tree
By Robbi Pickeral
Doesn't it seem like just yesterday that North Carolina guard Wes Miller was draining 3s for the Tar Heels at Florida State?
Now, he's coaching his own players to drain 3s -- and everything else. Miller, 28 and a Charlotte, N.C. native, was named interim head coach at UNC Greensboro today after head coach Mike Dement stepped down, according to this release on the school's website. Miller was in his second season as an assistant coach with the Spartans; he previously coached at Elon and High Point after graduating from UNC in 2007.
Miller will finish the season in the interim role, and a national search will be conducted for a new head coach. In the meantime, Miller's first tests will be playing East Carolina at Greensboro Coliseum on Friday -- then Duke on Monday, at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Spartans are 2-8.
Correction: UNCG's former coach is Mike Dement, not Scott. The name has been changed in this text.
