CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard Athletics has announced it will be conducting a national search for its diving coach for men’s and women’s swimming and diving. Keith Miller, The Class of 1989 Head Coach for Diving, has announced he is stepping down, effective Tuesday June 26.

Over his 27-year tenure at Harvard, Miller led both the men’s and women’s diving programs. Under his guidance, 15 Harvard divers won Ivy League Championships and many were Ivy finalists, placing in the top-eight at the championship. During the 2015 Ivy Championship Meet, Harvard had an unprecedented five female divers finish in the final, while a year later five Crimson divers were in the finals of the one-meter and six were in the finals of the three meter.

Additionally, Miller had nine divers qualify and compete at the NCAA Championships, throughout his time with the Crimson. Mike Mosca ’14, a finalist in three events at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials, finished 13th on the 3-meter board during the 2014 NCAA Championships. On the women’s side, Jing Leung ’18 became the first Harvard All-America diver since 1992 when she placed eighth on the platform in 2016.
