Position: Head Coach
Head Coach Tom Miller is entering his 12th season as a member of the Brown gymnastics coaching staff, serving his first year as the head coach. After spending his first 11 years as an assistant under Jackie Court, who retired in the spring of 2001 after 32 years with the gymnastics program, Miller was promoted to head coach.

Over the past decade the women's gymnastics team has consistently improved every year climaxing in 1999 as the most improved team in the Nation. Not coincidentally, Coach Miller was named Assistant Coach of the Year for both the ECAC Conference and NCAA Northeast Region.

For over a decade, Coach Miller has been conducting lectures and workshops to local and regional clubs. During the summer, Miller finds time to serve as master staff for many national camps including Parkettes, Woodward, and IGC. In 1996, Miller implemented and directed Brown's summer gymnastics program, which has grown in reputation and enrollment every year since its inception.

Involved in the gymnastics world since the age of five, Miller's coaching career began as a freshmen in high school when he was hired to assist a program in North Kingstown, RI. After two years, he joined his former coach at Gymski Gymnastics in Providence and assisted with the boys and girls team programs. After graduating from high school, Miller enlisted in the United States Air Force and worked as an aircraft electrical systems specialist for two years. When he returned to Rhode Island he coached and trained at several local gymnastics clubs. Miller also directed a YMCA program and worked as master staff for several National Camps.

Since joining the Brown coaching staff in the 1990-1991 season, Miller's expertise has played a major role in the Bears' success, including numerous all-around and event champions at the Ivy League and ECAC Championships. Over the past several years Brown has qualified individuals to the NCAA Regional Championships.

"I have a plan" says Miller, "that together, our team and supporting staff, will break records for the Brown record books."

He is a certified massage therapist and graduated from Rhode Island College with his Bachelor of General Studies degree.

In addition to his duties at Brown, Miller also teaches Health and Physical Education classes at Rhode Island College.
