Jonathan Miller joins the Lancer staff this year as an assistant for both the men's water polo and swimming and diving programs.
Miller, a former standout water polo player for the Lancers, comes to CBU after three seasons as the head women's water polo coach and assistant swimming and diving coach at Grove City College in Grove City, Pa.
Miller led the Wolverines to CWPA Division III titles in 2010, 2011 and 2012, and was named 2010 CWPA Division III Coach of the Year. During his tenure with Gove City, the Wolverines racked up a 34-26 record, including a program best 18-8 mark this past season. He also helped lead the Wolverine men's and women's swimming and diving teams to three straight Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) championships.
With both a bachelor's and master's of science in kinesiology from CBU, Miller also served as an assistant professor of physical education at Grove City for the past three years.
Miller graduated from CBU in 2008, staying on as a graduate assistant for the men's and women's water polo programs while he earned his master's degree.
A four-year standout goalie for the Lancers, Miller has the second most saves in program history with 1,025. His 415 saves in 2007 are still the highest single season total in program history and his 22 saves against Pepperdine in 2007 also still sit as a CBU record. Miller was named CoSIDA Academic All-District in 2007 and was ACWPA All-Academic in 2004 and 2006.
In Miller's first season as assistant coach, he helped lead the men's water polo team to a 17-12 record. He helped the goalies perfect their form and watched as senior goalie Austen Ramer became the program's all-time saves leader, breaking Miller's record.
