COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Brandon Miller, a top assistant to Thad Matta at Ohio State, has resigned to spend more time with his family.
Ohio State spokesman Dan Wallenberg confirmed Thursday night that Miller, a former player at Butler, had met with players earlier in the day and told them he was leaving.
Miller was an assistant for the Buckeyes from 2005-07 and 2008-11 and at his alma mater for one year between those two stints. His departure could open a spot for former Duke player Greg Paulus, hired by Ohio State last month as video coordinator.
Matta's two remaining assistants are Dave Dickerson and Jeff Boals.
