CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia head coach Mark Bernardino has announced Anna Miller as an assistant coach on the Cavalier swimming and diving staff.
Miller will work primarily with the middle distance freestylers, stroke and individual medley swimmers at UVa in addition with assisting in recruiting efforts.
"We are really pleased to announce the appointment of Anna Miller to the University of Virginia swimming and diving staff," Bernardino said. "Anna brings a tremendous and unique skill set to our program. She is both an accomplished swimmer and student of the sport. Anna brings us a fresh perspective on the latest technical and mechanical aspects of our sport. Her skills in working with Olympians and national team members in respects to stroke techniques and mechanics are something we feel will really benefit our student-athletes here at UVa."
Miller, a native of Johnson City, Tenn., comes to Virginia after spending the summer as the national team intern with USA Swimming. She assisted with all duties performed by the High Performance Team including filming, race analysis and coach/athlete support.
Miller also accompanied the High Performance team to national and Grand Prix competitions.
Miller spent the 2010-11 school year in two different roles at her alma mater, the University of Georgia. She spent the year as a graduate assistant with Georgia's CHAMPS/Life Skills program, which focuses on the development of student-athletes within the university environment. In that role, Miller monitored study hall and assisted in organizing community service events. She also served as an administrative assistant with the Bulldog swimming and diving program during the spring semester, helping with home swim meets, financial reporting and camper registration for Georgia's summer camps.
Miller swam for four years (2005-08) on the Georgia women's swimming team and finished her career as a seven-time All-American. She was a member of both the 2005 NCAA championship squad and the 2006 SEC championship team. Miller, a team captain as a senior in 2008, concluded her career as a four-time SEC Academic All-American. She also qualified for the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Trials.
Miller earned her bachelor's degree in risk management and real estate from Georgia in 2009. She completed her master's degree in sports management and policy from UGA in 2011.
