Adam Miller enters his first season as a member of the track and field coaching staff for the 2018-2019 school year. Coach Miller will serve as the throws coach as well as an operations coordinator for the track and field team.
Prior to Lipscomb, Miller was the throws coach and strength and conditioning coordinator for the track and field team at Grace College (Ind.). While at Grace, the throws squads continued to achieve marks, awards, and accolades the likes of which the program had never seen. His athletes broke school throwing records 21 times and rewrote the school’s throwing and weightlifting recordbooks. In 3 seasons, his athletes were responsible for over 75% of all-time top 5 marks in all of the throwing events combined.
12 all-conference performances, 11 NCCAA all-American performances, and 8 NAIA qualifying marks belonged to Grace’s throwers under Coach Miller. In 2016, MaCallister Seitz became Grace’s 2nd ever track and field NAIA All-American, finishing 8th in the discus. In 2018, Isaac Stuckey became Grace’s 3rd track and field NAIA All-American by finishing 4th in the country in the hammer. Also in 2018, Tommy Hickerson won the NCCAA national championship in the Javelin becoming the first Grace athlete to win an individual national title since 2010.
Prior to Grace, Miller spent the 2013-2014 season as an assistant track and field coach at Western State Colorado University. While there, his athletes captured 4 RMAC all-conference awards.
“I’m very excited and humbled by the opportunity that Lipscomb has given me to be a part of a historically strong program. I’m looking forward to instructing the throwers to be the very best they can be athletically, spiritually, in the classroom, and in the community.”
Miller graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Indiana Wesleyan University where he competed in track and field as a decathlete and a decorated javelin thrower. He was a 2-time NAIA qualifier and NCCAA national champion in the javelin.
Coach Miller enjoys all sports, weightlifting, woodworking, and spending time with family. He currently resides in Nashville.
