Volunteer Assistant Coach
Karl Miller, an Illinois native who has extensive background in all levels of the game, enters his second season as a volunteer assistant coach at Florida.
Miller joined the Gators after finishing his degree at the University of Illinois in May of 2011. He was a four-year starter for the men’s club team at Illinois, a top-five team since 2003. Miller was also a practice player for three seasons with the Fighting Illini women’s program, having the chance to work with coaching veteran Don Hardin prior to his retirement. The Fighting Illini made the regional semifinals in all three years of which Miller was a practice squad player. He coached at the University of Illinois volleyball camps under Kevin Hambly, current Fighting Illini head coach, for two years.
Miller, who already has four years of experience working with the University of Florida volleyball camp, has also been honing his coaching skills for Naperville Volleyball Club. The Naperville native has quite the playing resume, as he was named First Team All-State and Player of the Year in 2007 as a senior, playing three years on varsity as an outside hitter for Naperville North High School. He played for Naperville Volleyball Club, the same organization for which he was later a coach, for four years.
Miller holds a Bachelor of Arts in political science from the University of Illinois. He currently resides in Gainesville.
