Former New Mexico assistant basketball coach Ryan Miller has been hired as the assistant basketball coach at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
The 38-year-old Miller comes to UNLV from Auburn University, where he has been an associate coach for two years. Before that, Miller spent five years as an assistant coach with the Lobos at University of New Mexico.
During Miller's time with the Lobos, the team went 126-46, made five consecutive postseason appearances and won two Mountain West championships.
Runnin' Rebels head basketball coach Dave Rice said he is excited to have Miller join his staff.
"He is an experienced coach and has been an important part of a number of successful Division I programs," Rice said. "He is excellent at scouting opponents, a terrific recruiter and great with skill development."
"I am looking forward to getting started in Las Vegas, and helping build on the successful foundation that coach Rice and his staff have put together during their first three years," Miller said.
Miller played basketball at Northern State University, and was drafted to the Continental Basketball Association.
