The New York Knicks have hired Mike Miller as an assistant coach. Miller joins the Knicks after four seasons (2015-19) with the Westchester Knicks, the NBA G League affiliate of the New York Knicks.
Miller, 55, joined Westchester as the third head coach in franchise history on October 6, 2015. Miller compiled a 108-92 (.540) record with the team. In 2017-18, Miller guided Westchester to a franchise-record 32 victories as the team finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference and earned the Atlantic Division title for the first time in franchise history. He was named the 2017-18 NBA G League Dennis Johnson Coach of the Year.
“Mike is an accomplished and respected coach who has been an integral member of the Knicks family the last four years with Westchester,” said David Fizdale. “Mike is a great addition to the staff, a relentless worker who shares our approach to the game with an expertise in player development.”
Miller brings over 25 years of coaching experience to the NBA. Prior to his time with Westchester, Miller spent two seasons as an assistant coach with the Austin Spurs, the NBA G League affiliate of the San Antonio Spurs.
