UNCASVILLE, Conn. — First-year Connecticut Sun head coach Curt Miller has added the title of general manager to his duties.

Miller was named Friday to replace Chris Sienko, who announced last month that he would be stepping down at the end of the season.

Miller coached at Bowling Green and Indiana University before becoming an assistant with the Los Angeles Sparks last season.

He took over the coaching duties in Connecticut from Anne Donovan last December, following three straight, last-place finishes for the Sun.

The team was 10-17 headed into Friday night’s home game against Phoenix and is currently at the bottom of the league’s Eastern Conference.
