Appointed head coach of the California Baptist University women's water polo team in the spring of 2014 following time as an assistant for both the men's water polo and swimming and diving programs starting in 2012, Jon Miller has made a mark at his alma mater.
In seven seasons, CBU has gone 126-90 under Miller and finished a program-best third in the Golden Coast Conference in 2016. The Lancers have produced 14 All-America selections and 21 All-GCC selections under Miller. Hannah Evans also earned back-to-back NCAA Division II Player of the Year honors in 2015-16.
The former standout water polo player for the Lancers came to CBU after three seasons as the head women's water polo coach and assistant swimming and diving coach at Grove City College in Grove City, Pa.
Miller led the Wolverines to Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Division III titles in 2010, 2011 and 2012, and was named 2010 CWPA Division III Coach of the Year. During his tenure with Gove City, the Wolverines racked up a 52-34 record, including a program best 18-8 mark his last season. He also helped lead the Wolverine men's and women's swimming and diving teams to three straight Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) championships. With both a bachelor's and master's of science in kinesiology from CBU, Miller also served as an assistant professor of physical education at Grove City for three years.
A 2008 graduate of Cal Baptist prior to staying on as a graduate assistant for the men's and women's water polo programs while he earned his master's degree, Miller was a four-year standout goalie for the Lancers and has the third-most saves in program history with 1,025. His 415 saves in 2007 are still the highest single season total in program history and his 22 saves against Pepperdine in 2007, which still sits second all-time.
