UIC fires women's basketball coach Regina Miller

Illinois-Chicago fired women's basketball coach Regina Miller on Tuesday.

Miller compiled a 95-122 record in seven seasons, including an 8-22 mark this season. Her best season was 2013-14, when the Flames won a program-record 26 games and the Women’s Basketball Invitational championship.

“On behalf of everyone at UIC, we would like to thank coach Regina Miller for her seven years of dedication to our women’s basketball program,” first-year athletic director Garrett Klassy said in a news release. “She has been fully committed to the growth of the student-athletes on the court, in the classroom and in our community. All of us at UIC will be forever grateful for Coach Miller’s contributions toward enhancing the student-athlete experience.”

Klassy will begin a national search immediately.

“I’ve enjoyed my time at UIC and will always cherish the friendships that I made during my time here,” Miller said in a statement. “It’s been a good chapter in my book.”
