KU’s Aaron Miles New G League Warriors Coach

Former University of Kansas player Aaron Miles is the new head coach of the G League’s Santa Cruz Warriors.

 

He replaces Casey Hill.

 

Miles comes from Florida Gulf Coast, where he was an assistant under head coach Joe Dooley, a former KU assistant.

 

“This is a championship organization and he’s going to be with the [Golden State] Warriors through training camp all the way through the exhibition season,” Dooley told the Naples Daily News. “Then he gets to coach 50 games with the organization. There’s room for advancement. Do a good job with the D-League and hopefully at some point he’ll be with the [big league] Warriors. It’s a first-class organization and that’s a big key in the NBA.”

 

Before coming to Florida Gulf Coast, Miles was the assistant director of student-athlete development at Kansas in 2015-16.

 

A college star player at Kansas, Miles led the team in assists as a senior in 2004-05, averaging 9.3 points and 7.2 dimes, while leading the Jayhawks to a 23-7 record and the NCAA Tournament.

 

He graduated as the Big 12’s all-time career leader in assists, and third all-time in career steals at KU.

 

Undrafted, Miles played 19 games for the Golden State Warriors in 2005-06.

 

He also played in the D-League (Reno Bighorns), and overseas in France (Elan Bearnais Pau-Orthe), Spain (Cajasol Sevilla), Greece (Panionios, Aric BC), and Russia (BC Krasnye Krylya).

 

Miles will be taking over a Santa Cruz Warriors team that went 31-19 last season and lost to the Oklahoma City Blue in the Western Conference semifinals.

 

The Warriors were led by top corer Phil Pressey (Missouri), who averaged 18 points a game last year.
