Rutgers has added Jay Miller as associate head coach, according to a school release today.
Miller comes to Rutgers after a decorated career as both an assistant and a head coach. Most recently, he served a three-year stint at Louisville as pitching coach. That was preceded by a nearly decade-long tenure at Mississippi State, where he led the program to six NCAA tournament appearances.
Miller began his Division 1 coaching career at Missouri from 1987-2002, where he amassed 556 victories and led the Tigers to two Women's College World Series' berths in 1991 and 1994.
Married to former NFCA top dog Lacy Lee Baker, Miller joins a Rutgers program that posted a 24-33 record in 2016, including an 8-15 mark in conference play. The Scarlet Knights did not earn their first victory over a Power Five opponent until the middle of the conference season in early April.
