USC Promotes Miller To Assistant Coach
March 26, 2010
'I've known Tony for 20 years and feel he'll do a great job in every aspect for our program,' said O'Neill. 'He was a great player for me at Marquette and will be a great coach for us at USC.'
Miller joined USC's staff for the 2009-10 season and served as the team's strength and conditioning manager. He starred at point guard for Marquette (1991-95) under then-Marquette head coach O'Neill, before playing professionally 12 years in Europe for teams in Holland, Belgium, Lithuania and the United Kingdom. He was a Dutch League All-Star in 1998 and 2000 and helped lead his Den Helder team to the 1998 Dutch League title.
Miller had a standout four seasons at Marquette, the first three with O'Neill as the team's head coach. Miller served as the Marquette team captain his final three seasons and led them into the NCAA Tournament two times, including a Sweet 16 run in 1994. He ranks seventh all-time among Division I players in career assists with 956 and is Marquette's all-time leader in that category.
