The Illini have had an opening on the staff since Isaac Chew decided to accept an offer from Marquette.

Miller resigned from his position on the Ohio State coaching staff in June of 2011 and said his next job would be outside of basketball. He was looking to find a better work-life balance:

"I look at my life and the first thing that I want to accomplish when it's all said and done is I want to be a very good husband and I want to be a terrific father, and my next opportunity in terms of what I want to do is going to be outside of basketball and it's going to be in a situation where I can have more balance in my life."
