Dave Miller is one of basketball’s most versatile and energetic radio and television personalities.
I’ve known Coach Dave Miller for over 35 years and he certainly is a superb teacher of the game. He has a special knack for teaching the FUNdamentals and communicating with his players.
According to Dick Vitale of ESPN, ‘Dave Miller implemented a NATIONAL Recruiting effort and helped put USC basketball on the map nationally!’ His tireless work ethic and preparation that was his trademark in the coaching profession is very easily noticed in each and every broadcast he participates in. He has the respect of players and coaches at all levels to keep it real without sugar coating the facts. Miller’s collegiate stops included Eastern Kentucky University where he earned his Master’s Degree in Sports Administration, The University of Texas, Arizona State University, West Point, Utah State, and the University of Southern California.
