Miller named Volunteer Assistant Coach by Indiana Women's Tennis
Jan. 6, 2012
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Head Indiana women's tennis coach Lin Loring named Ryan Miller as the program's volunteer assistant coach this week. Miller was elevated to his new role after earning his undergraduate degree in Journalism from Indiana University and was a team manager for the Hoosiers for over four years.
Miller, a Washington, Ind., native, is a United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) certified instructor and has worked at the IU Tennis Center for the last four years, and will continue in that role while fulfilling his coaching responsibilities.
"This is a win-win for everyone," Loring said. "We get a young man who has a passion for tennis, a passion for IU and a passion to learn everything he can about the sport. He gets to continue building his resume. Ramiro Azcui and I look forward to mentoring him as he looks to gain experience in the coaching profession."
Miller joins a coaching staff that has combined for over 65 years of college coaching experience. A graduate of Washington High School, Miller played varsity tennis for four years, garnering three all-conference honors, all-district and all-state laurels. He grew up attending Loring's tennis camps in the summer.
"It is just a tremendous opportunity to work with someone the caliber of coach Loring," Miller said. "I have learned so much about the game being around the program for the last four years as a manager. I think this is a great opportunity for me."
The Indiana women's tennis team will kickoff its spring schedule with the IU Adidas Winter Invitational on Jan. 14-16. The Hoosiers will welcome Louisville, Marquette and Missouri to the IU Tennis Center for the event.
