CARTERVILLE – Former John A. Logan women’s basketball standout McKena Miller has been hired as assistant coach for the Lady Vols.

Miller, who averaged 14 points and 5.5 rebounds per game during the 2015-16 season when the Lady Vols were 24-6, is super excited about joining the Lady Vols coaching staff. “I was away from basketball last season while I worked on my nursing degree and I really missed it. The opportunity to be a coach gets me back in the game. I’ve been around basketball all my life and I’m excited about being at Logan.”

Miller is the daughter of Jim Miller, coach of the Carbondale Terriers boys team and is the sister of current Vols player Skylar Miller.

“I am really happy and excited about having McKena join our program,” said Lady Vols head coach Amanda Shelby. She knows the game and she relates well to the players.  She will also be able to help our players move on to the next level.”

Miller was a standout player at Carbondale Community High School and spent her freshman season at Missouri-St. Louis and her sophomore season at Logan. Miller will continue with her nursing studies at SIU-Carbondale.
