Two former UConn Huskies will come back and fill the open assistant coaching positions on the men’s basketball team.

Former assistant coach Patrick Sellers and former director of basketball operations Beau Archibald resigned their positions in May, the day before UConn revealed NCAA allegations of eight violations.

NBA player Kevin Ollie will take over as assistant men's basketball coach and Glen Miller will be director of men's basketball administration.

Ollie played 13 seasons in the NBA, and ended his pro-ball career this season as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. He also played in Orlando, Philadelphia, and Cleveland.

“I am thrilled to be able to welcome Kevin and Glen back to UConn,” head coach Jim Calhoun said on Friday. “Kevin’s years in the NBA have clearly prepared him for this. He has been a coach on the floor and has served as a mentor to many, many young NBA players. Glen brings over 20 years of coaching expertise to the staff and with his 17 years as a head coach he brings familiarity with budgeting, compliance, student-athlete welfare and many other administrative areas that he will deal with on a day-to-day basis here for us.”

Miller, a Groton native, joined UConn’s coaching staff under Calhoun in 1986 and spent seven seasons on the Husky staff.

He went on to coach at Brown University and the University of Pennsylvania.

Sellers, the former assistant coach, and Archibald, the former director of basketball operations, resigned their positions in May and have been accused of committing NCAA violations.
