Tabor College announced Monday the hiring of Steven Miller as defensive coordinator for the college’s football team and Andy Davis as assistant baseball coach.
“His work at William Penn University helped propel them into one of the top football programs in the NAIA,” Rusty Allen, vice president for intercollegiate athletics, said of Miller.
Miller received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, La., and a master’s degree in business leadership from William Penn University in Okaloosa, Iowa. Most recently, he was coached the defensive line and junior varsity squad at William Penn.
“He will bring much needed experience and maturity as a role model and leader to our defense,” head football coach Mike Gardner said. “His reputation as a developer of young men is what impressed me the most.”
“He has the kind of experience as a player and a coach that prepares him to teach, motivate, and recruit,” Allen said of Davis.
Davis has degrees from Hesston College and a bachelor’s degree in education and a master’s degree in exercise science, both from Pittsburg State University. Most recently he was the assistant baseball coach at Peru State College in Nebraska.
“He brings a wealth of knowledge with him from his time as a player at Pittsburg State and coach at Peru State College,” head baseball coach Mark Standiford said. “His knowledge of pitching and his ability to communicate will no doubt make our pitching staff better.”
