ATHENS, Ohio- The Ohio women’s basketball team has announced the addition of Marwan Miller to the staff as an assistant coach, head coach Bob Boldon announced today.

“We are very excited to bring Marwan back to Ohio,” Boldon said. “He will be a wonderful asset to our program.”

Miller served as an assistant coach at Saint Francis (Pa.) last season as an offensive coordinator. The team averaged 74.5 points per game in a fast paced system, which produced the 2016 NEC Freshman of the Year. Miller recruited in the state of Ohio and helped recruit two of Saint Francis’ current players.

During the 2015 season at Ohio, Miller filled in as an assistant coach to the women’s basketball team during an assistant coach’s maternity leave. He was on the floor coaching as well as recruiting and scouting during the team’s 2014-15 Mid-American Conference Regular Season and MAC Tournament championships.

Prior to his year at Saint Francis (Pa.), Miller served as a Director of Operations at Ohio from 2013-15. At that time he was responsible for all logistics of travel and lodging, while also planning and organizing camps.

Prior to 2013, Miller was a senior staff member for the Ohio Girls Basketball Report, where he evaluated the talent of perspective student athletes. He was also the head coach of the Ohio Glory Basketball Club from 2004-12 and worked with the OGBR Ohio Legends Exhibition team from 2004-07. Miller was the head varsity girls’ basketball coach at Columbus South High School during the 2008-09 season, and assistant varsity girls basketball coach for the 2006-07 season with the Columbus Africentric Early College.

Miller received his Bachelor’s degree from Franklin University in 2012, and his Associate’s degree from Columbus State Community College. He is a member of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association and the Adidas Top Ten All-American Selection Committee.
