Bowling Green rewards Miller, extends contract

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Forget about gender equity at Bowling
Green.

Women's basketball coach Curt Miller received a contract
extension through 2013 that will pay him more than men's basketball
coach Louis Orr and football coach Gregg Brandon.

Athletic director Greg Christopher said Wednesday that Miller
will make $160,124 a year, exactly $124 dollars more than Orr, who
was hired last week.

The Falcons became the first Mid-American Conference women's
team to reach the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament last season,
finishing 31-4. Miller is 124-60 in six seasons and has won the
regular season and conference tournament titles the past three
years.

"Curt and his staff have done a remarkable job and we intend to
maintain the program at the elite status in the MAC," Christopher
said.
