It was announced Monday by Scott Devine, St. Mary's College of Maryland Director of Athletics & Recreation, that Drew Miller would be the next head coach of the men's and women's tennis programs effective immediately.
Miller's tennis experience includes serving as an instructor and team coach at Courts Plus in Elmhurst, Ill. While at Courts Plus, he worked with junior high and high school teams and taught group and private lessons to all ages and levels.
He owns a successful high school playing record, including winning the 1998 South Regional Championship singles title in Colorado Springs, Colo. as a sophomore at Cheyenne Mountain High School and being part of the first doubles team to make it to the Ohio State High School Tournament from Hudson High School (Ohio). Miller was a three-time MVP as well as the No. 1 singles player at Western Reserve Academy (Ohio).
Miller comes to St. Mary's after a five-year run as the head men's basketball coach at NCAA Division III Schreiner University (Kerrville, Texas) of the American Southwest Conference. He led the Mountaineers to unprecedented success on and off the floor in his five seasons at the helm, including the record-setting 2011-12 campaign as SU notched their first-ever ASC playoff berth and best record (13-12) since Schreiner joined Division III in 1999.
He has over 10 years of NCAA Division III coaching experience as Miller has made assistant basketball coaching stops at Hiram College (Hiram, Ohio), Lynchburg College (Lynchburg, Va.), Southwestern University (Georgetown, Texas), and Trinity University (San Antonio, Texas). He has coached internationally as well at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
Miller graduated in 1995 from Kenyon College (Gambier, Ohio) with a bachelor of arts in psychology. He then earned a master of science in education (sport science/coaching) from the University of Akron in December 2002.
