Missouri men's basketball team adds new assistant coach

COLUMBIA — Ryan Miller has been added to the Missouri basketball bench as an assistant coach, the team announced Friday.

Miller joins coach Frank Haith's staff in place of Isaac Chew, who left to take an assistant coaching position at Illinois last month.

"We're very fortunate to have someone of Ryan's caliber join our program," Haith said in a release. "I think he's the total package, he's an outstanding, proven recruiter and an outstanding coach who is a great teacher and skill development guy."

Miller spent the last five years as an assistant coach for Steve Alford at New Mexico. The Lobos made two NCAA Tournament appearances during his tenure there.

Before coaching at New Mexico, Miller was a basketball operations assistant at Memphis under John Calipari. 

“I’m excited to have this kind of opportunity to work for a university like Missouri,” Miller said. “Coach Haith is obviously a great coach, and I’m grateful to him, and to Mike Alden and his administration for asking me to be a part of it. I’m looking forward to continuing to help build Mizzou’s program on and off the court, and be part of the transition into the SEC."
