David Miller Appointed to be UNO Athletic Director
Omaha - David Miller has been selected as the new director of athletics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) and will assume his duties on May 24, Chancellor John Christensen announced today.
“David has impressed us all with his thoughts on college athletics and the importance of placing the student-athlete front and center,” Christensen said. “David wants the students in his program to succeed both on and off the playing field.”
Miller, former associate athletic director at Southern Methodist University (SMU), replaces David Herbster, who announced his resignation last year. Herbster came to UNO in 2005. Tom Frette, the UNO Athletic Department’s head athletic trainer, has served as interim athletic director since November.
“I’m excited about coming to UNO. The university has an excellent reputation for athletics and academics,” Miller said. “Being given the opportunity to lead a program like this is a wonderful and rare challenge.”
Miller’s athletic department experience began with the U.S. Air Force Academy program from 1989 through 1995. He then became an assistant athletic director at Truman State (Mo.) before moving to Ohio University for four years beginning in 1996. He was at SMU from 2000 until Jan. 1.
Miller earned a master’s degree in sports administration from Ohio University and a bachelor of business administration from Regis University. He also served in the U.S. Air Force from 1984 to 1995. For more information, call (402) 554-3502.
