Curt Miller (born October 6, 1968) is an American basketball coach, currently the head coach of the Connecticut Sun of the WNBA. He previously served as the head coach at Bowling Green State University from 2001–2012 and Indiana University from 2012–2014, and spent one season as an assistant to Brian Agler with the Los Angeles Sparks.
Assistant coaching career
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
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.
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. 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. Miller resigned on July 25, 2014 citing health and family reasons.
