University of Utah coach Pat Miller dies
Pat Miller, who led the University of Utah to nine NCAA skiing championships, died Saturday at age 64, following a recent illness.
A Salt Lake City resident, Miller died in Casper, Wyo., while visiting his brother, Jim, reports The Salt Lake City Tribune.
Miller, who joined the Ute staff in 1974, won a national title with the men’s team in 1981 and collected eight more championships after the men’s and women’s competitions were combined.
During his Utah tenure, which ended in 1999, Miller coached 46 individual NCAA champions, 251 All-Americans and 10 U.S. Olympians, reported the Tribune.
A memorial service for Miller is expected to be held in Salt Lake City in early July.
