Brandon Miller, who had a stellar career as a point-guard at Butler, 2001-03, returned to the Bulldogs in April of 2007 as an assistant men's basketball coach. His appointment completed a cycle that saw him move from the NCAA Sweet 16 at Butler to the Final Four at Ohio State. The former Butler basketball MVP spent the past three seasons at Ohio State on the staff of former Butler head coach Thad Matta. Miller served for two seasons as Director of Basketball Operations, before taking over as the program's Video Coordinator in 2006-07. His final season at Ohio State saw the Buckeyes advance to the NCAA Final Four and finish runner-up to national champ Florida. Miller first came to Butler in 1999, after spending one season in the basketball program at Southwest Missouri State. He sat out his first season at Butler and then started 97 consecutive games over his final three seasons with the Bulldogs. During his four years at Butler, he played on teams coached by Barry Collier, Matta and Todd Lickliter. He became one of just eight players in Butler basketball history to score over 1,000 career points in just three seasons, and he finished his Butler career with 1,121 points. In three seasons, Miller helped lead the Bulldogs to a 77-20 record and three trips to the NCAA Tournament. As a senior in 2002-03, he led the Bulldogs in scoring and assists while helping Butler to a 27-6 record, a Horizon League championship and a trip to the NCAA Sweet 16. The talented backcourt player finished his career among Butler's all-time "Top 10" players in three-point field goals (189) and assists (305). Miller was named a co-recipient of Butler's Most Outstanding Male Athlete Award in 2002-03, and he received the Horizon League's Cecil M. Coleman Medal of Honor following his senior year.
