Klamath Falls, Ore. -- 1000 wins, Oregon Tech Men's basketball coach Danny Miles hit that magic milestone Saturday night.
1000 wins is a remarkable achievement.
But coach Danny Miles says he isn't done just yet...
"I love coaching - and I'm probably going to coach two to four more years, depending on my health and that type of thing. And I want to make sure I leave before the administration gives me an apple and a roadmap."
"I have no apple, and no roadmap." Reassured O.I.T. President Chris Maples. "What I have is the hope that Danny will stay as long as he wants to stay."
A 71 to 51 win over Corban in Salem Saturday night secured the 1000th win for Miles.
"Congratulations, Danny!" Says Congressman Greg Walden. "Terrific job with terrific teams over the years - but it takes a terrific leader, and you're that leader. Congratulations, you're making us all proud throughout Oregon."
"Congratulations, obviously, Danny." Adds Klamath Falls Mayor Todd Kellstrom. "I hope many more for you. And thank you for what you have done for the city of Klamath Falls, and O.I.T."
Miles has also created a championship pattern over the past decade - and that pattern may hold a clue to the next goal for coach Miles...
"2016 is kind of a special year." Notes Miles. "I mean, we won it in '04, '08, and '12 - and maybe the magic will happen again."
But for Oregon Tech fans, every year with Danny Miles has been magic.
Harry Statham of McKendree University in Lebanon, Illinois is the only other men's basketball coach at a four year college to win more than 1000 games.
