STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut coach Kevin Ollie has made some
changes to his coaching staff.

Ollie on Friday promoted Glen Miller from assistant to associate
head coach, and promoted Karl Hobbs from Director of Basketball
Administration to assistant coach.

George Blaney, who served as associate head coach under Jim
Calhoun, will remain on the staff as an assistant coach and former
Husky forward Kevin Freemen will take the role of director of
basketball administration. He served as Hobbs’ assistant last
season.

Ollie took over the coaching job last month when Jim Calhoun
retired. He has never held a head coaching job. But Miller (Penn,
Brown, Connecticut College), Hobbs (George Washington) and Blaney
(Stonehill, Dartmouth, Holy Cross, Seton Hall) have a combined 57
years of collegiate head coaching experience.
