After leading his team to an 85-72 win over Chattanooga this past Saturday, former UNC guard Wes Miller became the all-time winningest head coach in UNCG history–earning his 125th win in charge of the Spartans.
In addition, Miller’s team is off to the best start in school history this season at 13-2 through its first 15 games of the year.
He took over the UNCG program on an interim basis during the 2011-12 campaign, and has held on to the job ever since. Prior to that, he was an assistant coach on the staff–a position he previously held at both Elon and High Point.
Miller’s playing career at UNC began when he transferred to Chapel Hill following his freshman season at James Madison. He came off the bench in his first year of eligibility as a Tar Heel–which ended with the team taking home the 2005 national championship.
He averaged a career-high 7.2 points per game in the 2005-06 season, which saw him start 16 of the 31 games he played in. As a senior, Miller’s minutes decreased and his scoring dropped to just 2.5 points per game.
