Curt Miller (born October 5, 1958) is the head women's basketball coach for the Indiana University Hoosiers. He previously served as the head coach at Bowling Green, between 2001-2012.

Assistant coaching career[edit]

Miller served as an assistant coach at Colorado State, helping the school to an 81-20 (.802) overall record during his three seasons there. He also served as an assistant at Cleveland State and Syracuse.

Head coaching career[edit]

Bowling Green[edit]

During his tenure at Bowling Green he compiled a 258-92 record including 135-41 in the Mid-American Conference. He was named MAC Coach of the Year 6 times, and won the conference regular season title 8 straight times between 2005-2012. His best season came in 2006 when he led the Falcons to a 31-4 mark, including a sweet sixteen appearance in the NCAA tournament. Overall he has made the postseason 8 straight seasons since 2005 with 5 NCAA Tournament and 3 WNIT appearances.

Indiana University[edit]

When Miller was negotiating a contract extension with Bowling Green in 2005, he included a "dream clause" in which Miller could list a few of his personal destination jobs.[2] The Indiana Hoosiers were on that list and, when an opening for head women's basketball coach occurred at the school in 2012, he applied for and got the position. Miller signed a six-year deal worth $275,000 a year.
