For Miller and Butler a year of transition

Send to Kindle(Credit: Butler University Sports Information) NEWARK, NJ – They entered the Prudential Center with a 1-7 conference record. The greater New York-New Jersey area is focused and immersed on Super Bowl activities, and while he may enjoy football, nothing of that order was on the mind of Brandon Miller. The Butler head coach in his initial season, succeeding the ever...

Forgrave: Turns out the Butler Way is Miller's way, too

The first time I met Brandon Miller, he seemed pretty amazed at where life had taken him over the past couple years. It was late June, two months after Butler's then-head coach, Brad Stevens, had hired Miller as an assistant coach at Miller's alma mater.

Bet against Miller, Butler at your own risk

Send to KindleSo Butler basketball is finished, right? The Bulldogs can’t possibly survive without the coach who led them to two national championship games and was a remarkable 117 games over .500 in six seasons.
