Northwest ISD’s Ellis Miller has been promoted to the position of head football coach and athletic coordinator at Eaton High School. He replaces Brad Turner, who is transitioning to a district administration role.

“This is a great move for Coach Miller,” said Joel Johnson, executive director of athletics. “I am confident he will be successful in this role. He is no stranger to NISD, having worked with our students since 2009. He brings a wealth of knowledge to the position and has already built great relationships with the students and families in the program.”

Coach Miller has 12 years of coaching experience, most recently serving as the defensive coordinator for Eaton High School’s football team while also serving as the school’s physical education department chair. He has coached a variety of sports, including football, wrestling, basketball and powerlifting.  Coach Miller previously served as the head track and field coach for Northwest High School from 2009-14, where he had been named a track coach of the year. He has also taught and coached in San Saba ISD, Bronte ISD and Southlake Carroll ISD.

“I am very excited about this opportunity,” Coach Miller said. “I have created so many great relationships with the students and parents in our Eaton Eagle community. I look forward to meeting more people, serving the students and staff and continue to build our programs upon excellence.”

Coach Miller has a master’s degree from Lamar University and bachelor’s degree from Angelo State University. He played football for Angelo State University and was named the Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Week twice. In his time coaching football, he has assisted in leading teams to district and area championships and state quarterfinals. He has received coaching staff of the year and coach of the year titles more than five times in his career.

His new position at Eaton is effective immediately.
