When hired as CSU's assistant coach in the spring of 2004, Dale Layer knew that Colorado State was adding a coach that has an outstanding reputation as a hard-working individual who will have an impact on student-athletes and the basketball program.
Miller boasts an impressive basketball background that has seen him bring success to every team that he has been involved with as either a player or a coach.
Miller began his basketball career alongside NBA standout Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf at Gulfport (Miss.) High School. Together, Miller and Abdul-Rauf guided their team to back-to-back 5A state titles. Miller averaged over 21 points and five rebounds per game for Gulfport and extended his career to the collegiate level.
Miller began his college playing career at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas where he spent two seasons before moving to Mississippi College. In the 1993-94 season, Miller concluded his career by ranking second on the team in scoring and leading the team in three-pointers while starting in 23 games.
Following his successful playing stint, Mississippi State University added Miller to its coaching staff. While with the Bulldogs, he helped the team to a Sweet 16 appearance in 1995 and a Final Four trip the following year. MSU won the SEC title both years and captured the league tournament title in 1997.
Following three years at Mississippi State, he spent seven years at the University of Texas-San Antonio, including the last two years as associate head coach. While with UTSA, he helped the Roadrunners to annually challenge for an NCAA berth and, in six of seven years, helped the team to a second place finish or better in the Southland Conference. In his seven years at UTSA, the Roadrunners won more games than any other team in the league.
Miller will be involved in every aspect of the Rams' program including on-floor coaching, recruiting and program organization and administration.
Owen and his wife Hollie Jo reside in Fort Collins.
