RE: Podcast With Wes Miller
A couple nuggets from the podcast...

Coach is going to bring in some staff assistants this week to hit the ground running. They will be guys that he's worked with before. This will help to instill culture and values that they believe in. He does want to set up a process with at least one assistant that he would consider any former player that is qualified for the position.

Coach Miller and Coach Fick were trying to connect in person prior to Miller's intro presser and weren't able to. Coach Fick came to Coach Miller's office the morning of the Spring Game to say hello and Wes attended the Spring Game. WM plans to spend more quality time with Luke when he gets back in town to pick his brain on what he's achieved at UC.

WM valued Mick's time and coaching acumen at UC and spoke at length on the phone with him about the UC job. Mick gave him some great advice and told him he could call him any time and Wes plans to take advantage of that offer. He also reached out to Coach Huggs and hopes that he can meet with him as well.

Recruiting philosophy: values toughness, defense, hard playing, physical, win the rebounding game, win the turnover game, win the hustle and effort game. This style of play impacts recruiting. Wants his kids to have some freedom offensively and play through mistakes. On the defensive side there is a focus, nose for the ball and intensity that he's looking for. Seeks kids with 1) competitiveness; 2) high value on winning vs losing; 3) intangibles/character qualities that fit their style of play.

He's thrilled to get his roster together and be ready to step out next year. We need to be a great basketball team right away. We're not trying to wait around and make people sit and wait on us [to be good].

Folks, if you have not listened to this, do yourself a favor and carve out an hour...best interview of a new coach I have ever heard.

Chad is so damned good. We are lucky to have he and Wes.

Agreed...he has really blossomed into something special as a sports media guy. I love it when he gets air time on the radio now.

And while you're at it, sign up for a damn subscription over there. Chad's killing it, and it's peanuts to support them.

Don't know how often I'll stop by but I signed up today. Wanted to support a guy doing hard work to support the Bearcats. And the 60% off is a just a bonus

Caught most of this.
Good stuff, Chad!

Coach sure is appreciative to UNCG. Genuinely so. But man, then he brought a bunch of their players over here. I know it’s a dog eat dog world, and if he doesn’t win he will get fired. He also is giving some of his old players a huge opportunity with us so there are winners and losers. But man, I wonder how they feel about him now. Will be interesting to see how they do next year.

Just want to say, thanks for starting up a Spotify channel too...makes things way more accessible. Great work as always Chad, and I'm thrilled we have a coach who wants to put the work in on all facets of being the face of a program.
