Miller next addition to Groce's staff

CHAMPAIGN — Former Ohio State assistant Brandon Miller will join John Groce's basketball staff at Illinois.

Miller's position likely will be assistant to the head coach — the position previously slated for Ramon Williams, who accepted an assistant coaching position at Virginia Tech. Miller arrived in C-U and was in the Illini basketball offices on Wednesday.

Miller and Groce have remained close after working together at previous stops.

The New Castle, Ind., native and Butler graduate is quite familiar with this basketball territory. He was on Thad Matta's staff at Ohio State from 2005-07 and 2008-11. He also was an assistant at Butler in 2007-08. In three seasons as a standout guard at Butler, Miller scored more than 1,000 points and helped the Bulldogs to the Sweet 16.
