UNLV fires coach Miller

Mar 15, 2008 - 2:35 AM LAS VEGAS (Ticker) -- Nevada-Las Vegas basketball coach Regina Miller was abruptly fired Friday.

The school issued a brief announcement that Miller is no longer serving as coach of the team "as of 5 p.m. Friday."

In the statement, director of athletics Mike Hamrick called it is a personnel matter and said the university can make no further comment at this time.

Inheriting a moribund program that had managed a total of 12 wins in three seasons, Miller posted eight consecutive winning seasons before UNLV dipped to 14-15 in 2006-07 - her first losing campaign.

The Runnin' Rebels tumbled to 8-22 this season and lost to Colorado State in the Mountain West Conference play-in game.

Miller posted a 175-125 record at UNLV and is 235-225 overall, including six seasons at Western Illinois.
