GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNC Greensboro (UNCG) head men’s basketball coach Wes Miller has accepted the head coaching position at the University of Cincinnati.
Miller, a Greensboro native, spent the last 10 seasons with the Spartans compiling a 185-134 (.566) overall record. The two-time Southern Conference Coach of the Year led UNCG to its second NCAA Tournament appearance in four years after winning the conference regular-season and tournament titles this past season.
UNCG enjoyed a special season by winning 21 games, claiming the SoCon Tournament championship, participating in the NCAA Tournament for the second time in four years, and finishing ranked 12th in the final CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major poll.
The Spartans were one of the elite programs in the country over the last five years, winning 125 games and at least 20 or more games in each of those seasons. UNCG has also won at least 13 Southern Conference contests in five straight seasons and compiled an 81-28 regular season mark in conference competition.
“We are appreciative of everything that Wes has done not only for elevating the men’s basketball program, but for our university,” UNCG Director of Athletics Kim Record said. “Under his leadership, Wes has won at an elite level, but more importantly, he made sure he graduated student-athletes at a high rate, forged a strong bond with our men’s basketball alumni, and contributed to the community. I want to thank Coach Miller for his commitment to UNCG these past 10 years. We wish him all the best at Cincinnati. They are getting a terrific leader and a better human being.”
UNCG won a school record 29 games during the 2018-19 season and earned the No. 1 seed in the National Invitation Tournament. He and his staff also developed several players who are currently competing professionally.
Regarded as one of the top young coaches in college basketball, Miller built the Spartans into perennial championship and NCAA Tournament contenders, was named as ESPN.com’s No. 1 Coach Under 40 in May 2020 and also was tabbed for The Athletic’s 40 Under 40 list a year ago.
A national search for the program’s next head coach will begin immediately.
