Denver has promoted Steve Miller to associate head coach.
Miller has been an assistant to coach George Gwozdecky for the last 19 seasons, three at Miami and 16 at Denver.
“Steve Miller has been a trusted friend and confidante for 19 years,” Gwozdecky said in a statement. “He is recognized as one of the finest recruiters, coaches and teachers in all of college hockey. Steve is highly respected by our former players as well as many of our rivals. He is a major reason that the Pioneer hockey program continues to contend for championships every season and is truly deserving of this opportunity and title.”
In 2009, Miller was the winner of the Terry Flanagan Award, an honor given by the American Hockey Coaches Association to recognize an assistant coach’s career body of work.
