Keith Miller is in his 27th season as a member of the Harvard coaching staff in 2017-18. He coaches both the men's and women's diving programs and has led each to great success during his tenure. In the Fall of 2014, Miller's position was officially endowed as The Class of 1989 Head Coach for Diving.
Since 2003, 15 Harvard divers have won Ivy Championships, and many more have been Ivy finalists (top-8). Also during that time, Enrique Roy ’04, Samantha Papadakis ’06, Mike Mosca ’14 and Jing Leung '18 have competed at the NCAA Championships. Mosca was a finalist in three events at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials and finished 13th at the 2014 NCAA Championships on 3-meter. Leung became the first Harvard first team All-America diver since 1992 when she finished eighth on the platform in 2016.
Harvard capped off the 2016-17 season with stellar performances from both its men's and women's teams at the Ivy League Championship Meet. On the men's side, Bobby Ross was a second team All-Ivy League selection on the 1- and 3-meter boards. For the women, Mikaela Thompson won the 1-meter for the second-straight year and Jing Leung took second on the three-meter. Leung went on to win the NCAA Zone A Diving title on the platform, advancing to the NCAA Championships.
The 2015-16 season was highlighted with the Crimson women sweeping the 1- and 3-meter dives at the Ivy Championships by Mikaela Thompson '18 and Hannah Allchurch '18, respectively. Additionally, Jing Leung took first team All-America honors at the NCAA Championships on the platform.
In 2015, Mosca became just the third diver in Ivy League history to sweep the 1- and 3-meter at three consecutive Ivy League Championships.
In 2013-14, Harvard’s divers were exceptionally strong. Five women finished in the top-9 in the 1-meter event and in the top-13 on 3-meter. For the men, Mosca repeated as Ivy Champion on both 1-meter and 3-meter, with Joe Zarrella ’14 claiming third in both events.
In addition to his work with Harvard's programs, Miller also has significant experience at the national and international levels. He was selected to coach at the 1994 and 1995 United States Olympic Festivals and was a member of the U.S. National Team staff from 1995-97.
Miller coached the national team in Vienna and Rome in 1995 and traveled with the team to Torneo de Clavados in Mexico in 1996, to the World University Games in 1997, and to the Canada Cup in 1999.
Prior to his appointment at Harvard, Miller was the diving coach at Wesleyan University (Conn.), UC-San Diego, Tufts University and MIT. He began his coaching career as an assistant to coach John Walker, Harvard Diving Coach, 1972-88.
Miller is a 1982 graduate of Tufts University with a degree in Spanish literature. He also serves as the coach of the Charles River Diving club team. He lives in Waltham, Mass., with his wife, Agnes, and children, Silvie, Tommy and Danny.
