Ryan Miller is the head coach of Willamette's rowing teams. He joined the Bearcats as an assistant coach for the 2011 spring season before starting serving as the interim head coach in 2011-12. He was promoted to head coach in the summer of 2012.
Miller's rowing career began as a novice with the University of North Carolina Crew Club, where he saw success racing in both heavyweight and lightweight crews.
Following graduation, he began a three-summer stint coaching for the junior's and master's sweep and sculling programs at the Duxbury Bay Maritime School in his hometown of Duxbury, Mass.
In the fall of 2008, Miller headed south, where he joined the coaching staff at Florida State University while also pursuing a master's degree in Urban Planning. He served as the women’s assistant coach at FSU for two years and helped coach the Seminoles to strong finishes at many regattas across the Southeast.
Some of the highlights from his coaching career at FSU included: medals at the Florida Championship Regatta, Head of the Chattahoochee, First Coast Regatta, and a top six finish at the SIRA championship regatta in the women’s novice 8+.
In the summer of 2010, he participated in a cross-country cycling trip with the organization Bike & Build, benefiting affordable housing initiatives. The journey included 13 states and covered over 4,300 miles. When he is not coaching, Miller enjoys spending time sculling and cycling.
