Biography

Since taking over the position of Head Tennis Coach in June of 2014, Coach Ryan Miller has made an immediate impact on Hanover College’s Men’s and Women’s Tennis programs.

In his first two seasons at the helm of the women’s program, the Panthers have amassed a 29-7 (.805%) record in dual matches, including a perfect 16-0 record in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference regular season matches and two regular season conference titles. Hanover has also achieved great tournament success under Miller, winning two consecutive HCAC tournament titles in addition to two consecutive NCAA Division III National Tournament appearances. Miller’s efforts leading the program have earned him two consecutive HCAC Coach of the Year awards for women's tennis.

Under Miler's direction, the 2015-16 season saw the Hanover men's tennis program make a record turnaround, jumping from just five team wins in '14-'15 to setting a school record with 14 wins in '15-'16.  The Panthers also jumped from a 1-7 HCAC mark in '14-'15 to a 6-2 mark in '15-'16, finishing in a tie for 2nd place in HCAC play.  Miller was named 2016 HCAC men's tennis Coach of the Year for his team's efforts, his third such award in just four seasons at the helm ( two women, one men).  For his efforts with both men's and women's programs, Miller was named 2015 USPTA Midwest College Coach of the Year.  

Miller is a USPTA certified Elite Professional, and came to Hanover after stints as a Head Pro at the Jasper Tennis Club in Jasper, IN, and as a volunteer assistant at Indiana University on the women’s side under college tennis’s all-time winningest coach, Lin Loring.

Miller was named 2013 USPTA Indiana Professional of the Year, and has had several scholarly articles featured in the USPTA Midwest Connection magazine.

Miller resides in Madison, IN, where last summer, he led the charge to organize a USTA Midwest Youth Team Tennis program that saw 125 area youth engage in the sport.
