(Indianapolis) -- Butler has named assistant Brandon Miller as the team's new Head Coach, replacing Brad Stevens who left to take the job with the Boston Celtics. Miller is a familiar name around Hinkle Fieldhouse. He graduated from Butler in 2003 after winning three league championships, scoring more than 1,100 points, and he was the top scorer on Butler's 2002 - 03 team, the first to reach the NCAA tournament's round of 16 in more than four decades.

He spent one season as Thad Matta's video intern at Xavier, then followed Matta to Ohio State. After three seasons as video coordinator and director of basketball operations, Miller returned to Butler as an assistant in 2007 - 08. He went back to Ohio State for three more seasons before spending last season as special assistant to Illinois coach John Groce.
