Brandon Miller has resigned as assistant coach of Ohio State’s men’s basketball.
OSU athletic department spokesman, Dan Wallenberg, confirmed Miller’s Thursday resignation.
“We wish the Miller family well,” Wallenberg told The Lantern in an email. “Brandon has been a significant part of Ohio State’s success the last several years and he will be missed.”
Wallenberg declined to comment further, saying, “we do not discuss personnel situations until positions are filled.”
Miller graduated from Butler University in 2003. While there, Miller played under current OSU coach Thad Matta. After his playing career, Miller spent 2005-2007 on Matta’s coaching staff at OSU as director of basketball operations and video coordinator. Miller then returned to his alma mater as assistant coach for Butler’s 2007-08 before rejoining Matta’s staff in the summer of 2008.
OSU sophomore forward Jared Sullinger posted on his Twitter account, @Jared_Sully0, at about 1 a.m. Friday morning: “Best Wishes to OSU Basketball assistant Brandon Miller. Leaving The game to spend time with his family.”
