I was just having a conversation with someone about this hire. My first reaction is good hire, theirs was bad hire. We'll see. It may or may not work out, byt I think it is worth a try. Miller isn't the only future UNC candidate, so it may not ever be a future possibility for him. 

Miller clearly waited for the UNC position. He didn't get it, so he wisely is leaving to elevate his profile as well as the perks that go with that. UC is a good basketball job. 

Mick Cronin did well there except one thing, albeit an important thing. Cronin didn't mix in deeper NCAA Tourney runs with his annual consistent success there. (And that matters)

You say that UNC may not ever be a future possibility for him.  I disagree.  If he has the type of success the UC is hoping for then I'd certainly think that he'll be a top candidate for the UNC job in the future and UNC will go after him.  That is why I think it is curious, if it ends up being a good hire, it drastically increases the chances you lose him to UNC.  UC obviously hopes Miller to has a wild amount of success, so they also must hope that Hubert Davis has a ton of success at UNC & sticks around well past retirement age and/or another possible UNC candidate like Stackhouse is more successful than Miller.

May" as in may or may not.

Miller waited for the UNC position. He didn't get it. So he is doing two things, one going to a higher profile job, with more money, resources etc...as many coaches do. And he gets a chance to elevate his profile for future Power 5 type jobs that may or may not include UNC. I never said either way whether or not he would be considered at UNC in the future. If he has a lot of success before the next time it opens, he would very well likely get considered, if not get the job. 

Hubert Davis gets hired. UNC is not likely to be open any time soon. It's a good time for him to make a move, and he has a pretty decent landing spot.

I believe some people over think some situations. UC needs a coach now. Miller would be one of several future UNC candidates who knows when. It would appear to be a good situation for both him and UC. (Doesn't mean he'll succeed there or stay) But, it means it's a solid move for both today.

This is awesome.

I watched the culture montagefrom a good YouTube basketball guru who breaks down offenses and defenses,  Hoopvision68.  I bought the book he recommended on how to analyze basketball, "Basketball on Paper" by Dean Oliver.  It's the Sabermetrics of basketball.
