"We are excited to have Eric Miller as our new head baseball coach at PHS." says Jeff Staley, PHS Athletic Director, "His passion for baseball is only exceeded by his passion for his faith, family, and the community of Pittsburg."
Miller returns to Pittsburg High School with local pride and experience. "He was an outstanding player at PHS and then at Pittsburg State University, where he was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame in 2009," says Staley. Miller also brings years of coaching experience from his alma mater as the Assistant Baseball Coach.
"I am extremely grateful to the hiring committee and the Board of Education for giving me this opportunity.

Coach Miller will assume his new duties effective July 1.
