Doug Miller resigned Friday as the Maiden boys basketball coach.
Miller, who spent four seasons as Blue Devils coach, went 19-75 during his tenure, including a 9-15 record and a playoff appearance this season.
â€śWhen the season was over, stepping down was something my wife and I talked about,â€ť Miller said. â€śI wanted to give it a month or two to see where I wanted to go with it, but I didnâ€™t want to leave the school hanging. I didnâ€™t want to drop off in the summer and have them scrambling for a coach.â€ť
Originally expected to coach the JV program in 2008, Miller replaced varsity coach Garry Robinson, who resigned before the season.
Millerâ€™s most successful seasons came from 2010-12. During that time, his teams went 18-31, including a playoff appearance â€” Maidenâ€™s first berth in boys basketball since 2004-05.
â€śThe past two years, weâ€™ve had pretty good seasons,â€ť Miller said. â€śThis year, making the playoffs was a huge goal of ours. We hadnâ€™t in several years. That was big for us. Itâ€™s a tribute to the kids and the work they put in.â€ťÂ
Maiden will now search for a new coach, considering in-house candidates first.
The hire will be the fourth boys basketball coach at Maiden since 1984, joining Miller, Robinson and Frank Snider.
