— Duke University men’s soccer head coach John Kerr has announced the addition of Mike Miller as an assistant coach for Blue Devils. Miller will work closely with the goalkeepers and will be the chief recruiting coordinator.

“We are happy to announce the addition of Mike Miller to the Duke coaching staff,” said Kerr. “Mike brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the program. He will also be in charge of our video editing system and scouting of our opponents. Mike has been extremely successful in his previous positions and is highly respected and well known throughout the college soccer community. He understands the demands our athletes face as ACC soccer players and is also in tune with the Duke philosophy of excellence not only on the field but also in the classroom and community. We are very pleased to welcome Mike and his wife, Morley, to the Duke Soccer Family.”

Miller comes to Duke after spending four seasons as an assistant coach at Syracuse University. He joined the Orange in February of 2010 and was named the program’s recruiting coordinator in 2011. During his time at Syracuse, Miller was integral in bringing in several youth national team and U.S. Soccer Development Academy League players to the program.

Miller recently was recognized by College Soccer News as one of the top 15 assistant coaches in Division I soccer. The publication noted his role in bringing top level talent to Syracuse with his 2013 class ranked 27th by College Soccer News.

His 2012 recruiting class was tabbed 14th nationally by College Soccer News, while the 2013 group featured a trio of top freshmen, including All-ACC second team pick Emil Ekblom. In addition to his recruiting responsibilities, Miller mentored the goalkeepers and handled video editing and opponent scouting. He is the founder of the Syracuse Soccer Goalkeeper Academy.

Miller’s efforts were essential in the Orange’s breakout season in 2012. Syracuse was the most improved team in the nation and advanced to the NCAA round of 16 in just the program’s second NCAA postseason appearance. The Orange finished the year ranked 17th in the NSCAA/Continental Tire Poll, the second time in program history it finished ranked in the final poll of the season.

Prior to joining the Orange, Miller was an assistant coach at the University of Evansville from 2006-09 under former Blue Devil assistant and Evansville head coach Mike Jacobs. During his time with the Purple Aces, the former college goalkeeper helped bring two College Soccer News Top 40 classes and worked closely with the goalkeepers.

Miller started his coaching career as an assistant coach at University of North Florida from 2004-06. He helped transition the Ospreys’ program from Division II to Division I.

A 2004 graduate of Jacksonville University, Miller started two seasons in goal for the Dolphins. He totaled four shutouts in his career and was named to the Atlantic Sun Conference All-Tournament Team as a junior. He earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education from Jacksonville in
2004 and a master’s degree in public administration from Evansville in 2009.

Duke is no stranger to Miller as his brother, Danny, was a member of the men’s soccer team from 2003-06.

Miller is a member of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), holds several national coaching licenses and serves on the group’s committee that is responsible for selecting the national assistant coach of the year.
