Coaching career

Miller began coaching at Purdue after finishing his master's degree there. He then spent 3 seasons as an assistant coach at Missouri, helping lead the Tigers to two appearances in the Women's College World Series. Miller then moved on to Oklahoma City University, where he led the Stars to two appearances in the NAIA Women's College World Series, including a runner-up finish in 1986. Miller was also the pitching coach for the Netherlands Antilles team at the 1987 Pan American Games.

Miller returned to Missouri in 1988, where he spent fifteen seasons as the head coach, leading the Tigers to 2 conference championships, 5 NCAA Tournament appearances, and two Women's College World Series appearances. However, Miller was fired in 2002 after 3 straight losing seasons. Miller was then hired as head coach of Mississippi State, where he led the Bulldogs to 6 NCAA Tournament appearances in nine seasons, despite never having a winning conference record. Miller was fired after the 2011 season, his second straight losing season.

While at Mississippi State, Miller was also the head coach of the U.S. national team. He joined the staff at Louisville Cardinals softball in the fall of 2012., officially becoming pitching coach before the 2015 season.
