The USHL announced this afternoon that long-time Denver assistant Steve Miller will be the first ever head coach and general manager of the league's newest expansion club in Madison, Wisconsin, which will being play in the USHL next season.

Miller has been an assistant coach at Denver for the past 20 years, serving all but this current season under George Gwozdecky, and is renowned as one of the best recruiters in college hockey.  Miller is a native of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, just outside of Madison, and played for Madison's original USHL franchise back in the mid-1980s, which helps make him particularly suited for this position.

Miller's duties with the yet-to-be-named Madison franchise will begin at the start of the calendar year, which means that new Denver head coach Jim Montgomery will have to find a replacement to take over mid-season.
