Butler Gets New Head Coach, Shows it Has More Professionalism than Dwight Howard

BrandonMiller

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.

    Butler proves again to be the best run and classiest basketball program in the state of Indiana. The expect to win and do not worry what others think or say about what decisions they make. They continue to make IU and Tommy Crean look like bumbling fools.

    I agree with your comment backdoor, but then again that’s not real hard for Butler to do.

    Did Dwight Howard steal your girlfriend? He handled his free agency just fine. The reports of him waffling were B.S.

    Agree with 3. Dwight Howard’s free agency was overblown and over scrutinized. When it leaked that he would be going to Houston his camp said they were 50/50 because they had not yet talked to the Lakers brass. Twitter is great but this is the ugly side. Everybody trying to get the first scoop or make the first joke creates stories like this that get blown way out of proportion.

    Remember this, D12 made a smart basketball decision and had the courtesy to tell the Lakers in person. I’m not a fan of the guy but all the rants and criticism about him being indecisive and 50/50 was so exaggerated and dramatized.

    4. Right. He was punished for his past waffling with Orlando. It was the narrative people wanted to go with, and facts be damned, they were going to go with it.

    I think you are being too hard on Dwight Howard. He called every suitor to tell them personally that he wasn’t going to sign with them, then he flew to LA to tell the lakers in person he was going with Houston. You can’t get mad at him for being really deliberate.
