Meg Miller Returns to Brown as Assistant Lacrosse Coach

An assistant coach for the Bears' women's lacrosse team from 2004-2009, Meg Miller has returned to Brown for her second stint on head coach Keely McDonald's '00 staff this August. After coaching fulltime from 2004-2008, Miller transitioned into a career in the business world, continuing to coach with Brown on a volunteer basis in 2009.

"I am thrilled to have Meg back at Brown," said McDonald.  "She brings tremendous coaching and playing experience to the program.  On top of that, she has been an integral piece of the program's growth and history over the last few years. She knows Brown and the program and is very passionate about educating the current student athletes.  We can't wait to get started."

A 2004 graduate of Duke University with a B.A. in Psychology, Miller was originally hired in August 2004 as the second assistant. After two seasons as the Bears' second assists, Miller was promoted to the Bears' top assistant in August of 2006. She stayed on for two years in that role, before moving to a career outside of athletics.

During her time at Brown, Miller has worked with the defense, coaching All-Ivy goalie Julia Southard '05 in her first season, 2007 All-Ivy honoree Kiki Manners '10, and 2008 All-Ivy honoree Noelle DiGioia '09. In addition to working with the goalies and defense, Miller also served as the Bears' recruiting coordinator.

A two-time All-South Region selection, Miller was also a two-time Second Team All-American while with the Blue Devils. Miller earned All-ACC honors as a senior, and was named to the All-ACC Tournament Team in 2003 and 2004. She helped to lead the Blue Devils to the NCAA Tournament for four straight years. A nominee for the women's lacrosse Tewaarton Trophy in 2003 and 2004, Miller was a Preseason All-American in both 2003 and 2004 and the ACC co-Rookie of the Year in 2001.

A native of Severna Park, MD, Miller currently lives in Cranston.
