BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Bowling Green women's basketball coach Curt Miller will not travel with the team to Central Michigan after doctors determined Thursday that he suffered a mild stroke late in his team's win over Eastern Michigan last Sunday.

"This has been a wake-up call for me and I have already begun the process of finding a healthier balance," Miller said.

Associate head coach Jennifer Roos will fill in for Miller on Saturday at Central Michigan. It is unknown when Miller will return.

"Our first priority is Curt's health," said athletic director Greg Christopher. "Although he has been cleared to continue coaching, we all felt it was best to take a step back right now. We fully expect Curt to return to the bench soon."

The Falcons are 16-3 this season and 6-0 in the Mid-American Conference.
