STORRS, Conn. (AP) Connecticut coach Kevin Ollie has made some changes to his coaching staff.

Ollie on Friday promoted Glen Miller from assistant to associate head coach, and promoted Karl Hobbs from Director of Basketball Administration to assistant coach.

George Blaney, who served as associate head coach under Jim Calhoun, will remain on the staff as an assistant coach and former Husky forward Kevin Freemen will take the role of director of basketball administration. He served as Hobbs' assistant last season.

Ollie took over the coaching job last month when Jim Calhoun retired. He has never held a head coaching job. But Miller (Penn, Brown, Connecticut College), Hobbs (George Washington) and Blaney (Stonehill, Dartmouth, Holy Cross, Seton Hall) have a combined 57 years of collegiate head coaching experience.
