Curt Miller, one of the most highly respected coaches in Mid-Major NCAA Division I women’s basketball, suffered a mild stroke Sunday while coaching his team, Bowling Green State University to a 70-54 win over Eastern Michigan on Sunday, Jan. 22, 2012, the BGSU Athletics Department announced Thursday.

It was the 250th career win for the 43-year-old Miller, a passionate, fiery and inspirational personality, currently in his 11th year at the helm of the BGSU Falcons, a team he has taken to seven consecutive Mid-American Conference (MAC) divisional titles and six outright MAC conference championships.

The stroke was described as “mild” and Miller has been cleared by doctors to continue coaching, according to BGSU Athletics Director Greg Christopher in a written statement released by the University Thursday. However, Miller will not travel with the team to Saturday’s game at Central Michigan, and it is currently unknown when he will return to the sidelines.
