Instead of making a big fuss out the ordeal, Butler University has quietly, and quickly, promoted former assistant Brandon Miller to the position of head coach. Miller has held assistant positions at Illinois and Ohio State.
Congratulations, but most of all, thank you to Butler for not making this a ridiculous thing. We’ve had enough of that this week with D12’s (in)decision and the Brad Stevens fanfare. We appreciate you being considerate of our Twitter feeds. And we also appreciate your consistency in hiring baby-faced coaches. Final Four or not, at least we know he’s still getting carded when he orders Hurricanes at Applebee’s. I think he, Brad Stevens, and Sean Miller could sneak on a field trip somewhere.
