Miller named new Sports Information Director at Norwich

Scott Miller, former Public Relations Director for the WNBA Utah Starzz, has been named Sports Information Director at Norwich University. Miller has been covering sports and news events in the Salt Lake City market in Utah since 1990 for a variety of radio stations. Some of the major news events he has covered include the 2002 Winter Olympics, the 1997 and 1998 NBA finals.

While serving as Director of Public and Community Relations for the Utah Starzz (1997-1998) Miller and his staff oversaw two of the biggest stories in the WNBA: the first was the drafting of 7'2" center Margo Dydek of Poland, and the second was the hiring of legendary NBA coach Frank Layden to lead the Starzz. During his tenure with the Starzz, Miller traveled with the team, was the team spokesperson, and archived stats.

Miller has also been the radio play-by-play voice of the Weber State Wildcats as well as the Salt Lake City correspondent for such national radio outlets as A.P. Network Sports, ESPN Radio, and Fox Sports Radio. In the latter capacity, he covered more than 500 Utah Jazz games, nine NCAA Basketball tournaments, and worked as an on-site reporter for professional and collegiate events.

Miller received his BS degree from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, and recently graduated from Westminster College in Salt Lake City with a Master of Professional Communication degree.

In his role as Sports Information Director, which he will assume on September 13, Miller will be responsible for overseeing the media relations for Norwich University's 16 varsity sports.
