Sabres goalie Ryan Miller and former Bills head coach Hank Bullough were both inducted into the Michigan State Hall of Fame in a ceremony Thursday night in East Lansing, Mich.
Miller, who was drafted by the Sabres in 1999, won the Hobey Baker Award, given to the nation’s top collegiate hockey player, as a sophomore and was a two-time All-American at Michigan State. Joining him in this year’s induction class is his cousin Kip Miller, who was the school’s first Baker Award winner in 1990.
Bullough was a three-year starter at guard from 1952-54 at Michigan State and had a brief pro career with the Green Bay Packers. He was an assistant coach with the Spartans for 12 seasons and spent more than 20 seasons in the NFL as an assistant. He was the Bills’ head coach in 1985-86 for 21 games, going 4-17.
