Miller has the money to go get a big time assistant (or two). One of his first big recruiting goals is going to be getting himself a top tier staff.
Yes, this is significant increase over the prior assistant pool. They were earning only around $940k, inclusive of all staff members other than Brannen.

Brannen's staff pool (per contract) was 1.15mil. Not sure that Brannen actually used the entire pool of money though.

This feels like Miller being willing to take a pay cut in order to build a big time staff. Is it a coincidence that he is being paid ~200k less than Brannen was, but has a staff pool ~200k bigger than Brannen's? If that is the case it speaks to his commitment to making UC great again.

Now this I get behind as one hell of a commitment. Iíll let my assistant even have my side perks.

Some rumors floating around that he's not exactly hard up for money. I believe his dad is a big time donor to Wake Forest. Him and his brother walked on at UNC, they didn't have to get a scholarship to pay the bills. Having no kids (now being single) and earning 250k per year coaching doesn't hurt either.

Seems like he's into coaching for the love of the game, the love of coaching and the love of competition. Wants to win it all and become a great coach. Money is just a side perk.

If he finds a local women to marry, maybe he never leaves (or at least has a very small list of schools he'd go to).

Did he fly to Seattle? I thought the extended recruiting dead period on visits due to covid protocols would have prevented him meeting with Tari. Or is this different cause he is technically still a cincy player?

I believe that it is different since he's still a Cincinnati player. Technically Wes is flying out to meet with a current player, not with a recruit. Should give him a leg up over other coaches.
