OXFORD, Ohio — Miami University Director of Athletics David Sayler announced Monday that Glenn Box will be the Miami women's basketball 10th head coach.
"I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the opportunity which has been granted to me," said Box. "Competing for Championships while fostering an environment of doing things the right way will be the vision moving forward."
Box was previously with the Indiana women's basketball program, spending seven seasons with the team — the last four as associate head coach. During his time there, the team won 20 or more games in all seven of his seasons, according to Miami University. The team also earned five NCAA Tournament appearances, making it to the second round all five times and two Sweet Sixteens in 2021 and 2022. They advanced to the Elite Eight in the 2020-21 season.
The team earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament this past year and clinched a Big Ten regular season championship for the first time in 40 years.
Prior to his role at Indiana, he spent two seasons at Saint Louis University and two years at the University of Akron.
"A huge welcome to Glenn, his wife Leah and their entire family to Miami," said Sayler. "Coach Box quickly rose to the top of our search due to his influential role with the current historic run at Indiana, experience within the MAC and prior head coaching experience as well. I am very excited for our future under his leadership and direction."
Box holds an associate's degree in elementary education from Rend Lake and a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from Southeast Missouri State. Before entering the world of college basketball, he began his coaching career in the Cairo school district.
