RALEIGH, N.C. -- Meredith College Athletic Director Jackie Myers named Field Miller as the program's new Head Cross Country / Track & Field Coach. Miller will serve as the college's second track & field coach heading into the fifth year of the Avenging Angels sports program and will direct Meredith cross country in the program's 10th season of competition.
"Field brings a variety of experience to the position, including time spent as a championship high school coach, a Division I athlete, and a coach in NCAA Divisions II and III," said Myers. "We are excited about Field's recruiting experience and look forward to watching the program grow."
Miller served the past four seasons as an assistant coach at Pfeiffer University, one of the newest members of the USA South Athletic Conference. During his tenure with the NCAA Division II program, which began a transition to Division III in 2016, Miller coached one Conference Carolinas individual Champion and two DII All-Region selections. During the USA South's first Outdoor Track & Field Conference Championship in 2019, three of Miller's student-athletes earned individual championships, while 17 garnered All-Conference honors as medal winners in their events.
Prior to joining the collegiate ranks, Miller spent seven years at Central Academy of Technology and Arts. He directed three cross country teams to Regional titles with one State Runner-Up, and two individual Regional Champions. He was named Rocky River Coach of the Year on five occasions.
His indoor track & field teams garnered four individual State Championships with 22 state qualifiers. And the Central Academy outdoor program earned four individual state titles, nine regional championships with 14 conference champions and 68 regional qualifiers.
"I would like to thank Dr. Jean Jackson, Jackie Myers, Wendy Jones, the entire search committee, the Meredith student-athletes, and athletics staff for the opportunity to take the reins of the cross country/track & field programs," said Miller. "I cannot be more elated for the opportunity that Athletic Director Myers has given as this program has an established family atmosphere, a successful history, and great facilities to help grow this program."
"This is exciting for me because Meredith is an institution that is strong in history and tradition, and Raleigh is a great place to attract talent," said Miller.
