Curt Miller assumes new role as Connecticut Sun General Manager
UNCASVILLE – The Connecticut Sun announced Friday that Curt Miller will assume the role of general manager and head coach.
In August, Chris Sienko announced he would be stepping away from his position as Vice President, General Manager, COO and Alternate Governor of the Connecticut Sun at the end of September.
“I said from the beginning, I’m going to make mistakes as a young head coach,” said Miller, who was introduced as the head coach of the Connecticut Sun in December, in a statement to the press. “I’m also going to make some mistakes as a new GM but we’re going to grow together.”
“Curt is the right person for this job,” Sienko said in a statement. “His basketball knowledge is off-the-charts and his ability to adapt, make quick and critical decisions and bring a team together is second-to-none. I feel very comfortable handing off the reins to Curt. I know he respects the position and understands the responsibilities that come with it. He is clearly ready to go and our athletes support this appointment as well.”
