Indiana University's head women's basketball coach Curt Miller has resigned, according to Indiana University Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass.

Miller and Glass met with the women's basketball team and available staff Friday morning to inform them of the resignation and plans for the future.

"Curt Miller did an incredible job coaching this team, bringing us farther, faster than anyone could have reasonably expected," Glass said in a statement. "He leaves the program in a very strong position and poised for much greater success. I respect his decision to resign, and I wish him well. The search for a permanent successor has already begun."

Miller went 32-32 in his two years at the helm of the Indiana women's basketball program. During the 2013-14 season he helped the Hoosier women tie a school record of 21 wins.

Associate Head Coach Curtis Loyd will act as the Interim Head Coach until a new head coach is hired. Loyd joined the coaching staff in May after spending the last four years at the University of Minnesota.

Glass will lead the search for IU's next head women's basketball coach with the counsel and support of advisors inside and outside the athletic department, including a student athlete from the women's basketball team.
