NEW LONDON, Conn. – Emily Miller has been named the assistant field hockey coach at Connecticut College, as announced by head coach Chrissy Needham. She will be responsible for assisting with all aspects of the program with an emphasis on overseeing the training and development of the team's offense.
"I am very excited that Emily has accepted the assistant position with our field hockey program," said Needham. "She will be involved with all aspects of the program, but most immediately be tasked with managing our team attack and overseeing the offensive skills development of our players."
Miller joins the Camel family following a record-breaking playing career at LIU Post, which competes at the NCAA Division II level. She was named an NFHCA All-America First Team selection three times after helping the Pioneers put together a 58-21 ledger over a four-year span and advance to the championship game of the NCAA Division II Tournament.
Furthermore, Miller ended her career with a jaw-dropping 213 points on 91 goals and 31 assists. She was also the 2018 NCAA statistical champion in assists as a senior and fell one goal shy of matching the NCAA Division II single-season scoring record of 41 goals by finding the back of the cage 40 times during her junior campaign in 2017. Off the field, Miller was a four-year member of LIU Post's Relay for Life and served as Treasurer of the school's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).
"Emily's playing experience at LIU Post garnered her many accolades while also giving her championship experience at both the conference and national level," added Needham. "I look forward to adding her knowledge and perspective to our coaching staff and cannot wait for her to get started!"
A native of Bridgewater, New Jersey, Miller earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from LIU Post in 2019.
