BOWLING GREEN, Ohio – Bowling Green head coach Curt Miller will not travel with the team to Central Michigan after it was determined by doctors Thursday afternoon that he suffered a mild stroke late in his team’s 70-54 win against Eastern Michigan on Jan. 22.
“This has been a wake-up call for me and I have already begun the process of finding a healthier balance,” Miller said. “I am passionate about coaching and I look forward to my return soon. I, along with the rest of our coaches and players, would like to thank the community for its ongoing support of our program.”
It has not been determined when Miller will return to the sidelines. The BGSU Department of Athletics asks all members of the media to please respect Miller’s privacy as he recuperates.
“Our first priority is Curt’s health,” Director of Athletics Greg Christopher said. “Although he has been cleared to continue coaching, we all felt it was best to take a step back right now. We fully expect Curt to return to the bench soon. Until then, everyone involved with our department and the women’s basketball program will support Curt and our student-athletes.”
Associate head coach Jennifer Roos will lead the program in Miller’s absence, serving as acting head coach Saturday at Central Michigan.
