Although the youngest member of the NC state coaching staff, Archie Miller has already served in more capacities than any other coach. He has been a player for the Wolfpack, an intern, the Director of Basketball Operations and is now an assistant coach.
Miller returned to NC State in August 2004 to serve as the Director of Basketball Operations after coaching for one season at Western Kentucky. At WKU, his duties included assisting in both recruiting and scouting, as well as serve as the coordinator of the school's summer camps. Miller helped the Hilltoppers to a 15-13 record last season, and helped coach center Nigel Dixon who signed a free agent contract with the Orlando Magic.
Miller was a four-year letterman for NC State from 1998-2002. A former stand-out point guard, his career 218 career three-pointers ranks second in NC State history, while his .428 three-point percentage ranks ninth in ACC history. Miller also ranks second in school history with a career free throw percentage of 84.6% (165-of-195). During his senior season, Miller helped lead the Wolfpack to the ACC Tournament Finals, earning ACC All-Tournament first-team honors, and also helped the Pack reach the 2002 NCAA Tournament.
Archie's brother, Sean, is in his second season as the head coach at Xavier. Sean coached Archie at NC State as an assistant for three seasons. Miller's father, John, just retired as head coach at Blackhawk High School in Beaver Falls, Pa., where he coached both Archie and Sean during their high school careers.
Miller earned his B.S. degree in parks, rec and tourism from NC State in 2002. Miller is married to the former Morgan Nicole Cruse, also a NC State graduate. The couple had their first child, Leah Grace Miller, in October of 2004.
