Former player and coach Brandon Miller is returning to Butler. Miller has been named assistant men's basketball coach for the Bulldogs, filling the spot that opened when Associate Head Coach Matthew Graves left to become head coach at South Alabama.

Miller, whose resume includes stops at Illinois, Ohio State and Xavier, will be reunited with Butler head coach Brad Stevens for the third time. He was a top player on Butler's teams, 2000-03, when Stevens was serving first as Coordinator of Basketball Operations (2000-01) and later as an assistant coach (2001-03) with the Bulldogs. Miller then served as an assistant coach for one season (2007-08) under Stevens.

"We are very excited to welcome Brandon Miller back to Butler," said Stevens. "He's not only one of our all-time great student-athletes, but also a very accomplished and talented coach."

During his one season as an assistant coach at Butler, Miller helped the Bulldogs to a 30-4 record, Horizon League regular season and tournament championships and a berth in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Butler was ranked in the "Top 25" for 20 weeks, reaching as high as No. 8.
