GREENVILLE, N.C. - Cindi Miller, a two-time First Team All-Big South Conference player at UNC Asheville, has been named assistant volleyball coach at East Carolina, according to an announcement by head coach Julie Torbett on Monday.
Miller comes to ECU after serving as an assistant coach at Winthrop under Torbett during the 2012 season.
During her year at Winthrop, Miller oversaw the outside and middle hitters and was an instrumental part in the development of Jennica Mullins and Rachel Lenz. The pair went on to earn All-Big South Honors as Mullins was named to the Second Team and Lenz earned All-Freshman Team accolades. Additionally, she served as the head coach of the Rock Hill Volleyball Club where she was in charge of the 15-1 Power Team for one season.
"I am excited to have Cindi Miller on my staff at ECU," Torbett stated. "She brings a young perspective and knows my coaching style and philosophy. She is a great fit for the program."
As a student-athlete, Miller played for Torbett on the UNC Asheville squad from 2008-2010 and has also worked numerous camps and clinics under Torbett's direction. During her time with the Bulldogs, Miller earned All-Freshman Team honors and finished her career ranked seventh all-time in kills with 1,436.
While at Asheville, Miller worked at the Biltmore Volleyball Academy for three seasons. She served as the head coach for the 15-3, 16-2, and 16Power Teams, helping 15 and 16-year-old girls develop their skills on the court.
A native of Decatur, Ind., Miller earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from UNC Asheville in 2012.
