Connecticut Sun head coach Curt Miller returns to USA Basketball as an assistant coach for the 2022 USA National Team at its February training camp and the 2022 FIBA World Cup Qualifying Tournament in Washington, D.C.
Miller previously served as a member of the 2017-21 USA Basketball Women’s National Team Committee, and this marks his first stint on the court with USA Basketball.
In his six years (2016-21) at the helm of the Connecticut Sun, Miller has compiled a 111-75 regular season record and advanced the Sun to the playoffs in each of the past five seasons. His playoff runs have included a trip to the 2019 WNBA Finals and the 2020 and 2021 semifinals.
Miller’s 2021 squad finished the season with a league-best 26-6 slate and advanced to the WNBA semifinals, for which he earned a second WNBA Coach of the Year honor. His first came in 2017 after a record turnaround from a 14-20 finish in 2016 to 21-13 in 2017.
Prior to launching his WNBA head coaching career with the Sun, Miller spent 13 years (2001-02 through 2013-14) as a collegiate head coach at Bowling Green University and Indiana University. In all, Miller compiled a 290-124 record and advanced nine teams to postseason play, including a run to the 2007 NCAA Sweet Sixteen with Bowling Green.
