The 2020 d3wrestle.com Coach of the Year is TJ Miller of Loras College. Miller coached the Duhawks to a 14-1 record, a championship in the American Rivers Conference and Lower Midwest Region, and a runner-up finish at the National Duals. Loras qualified eight wrestlers for the NCAA Championships, six of whom were seeded in the top eight. In winning the ARC team title, Loras broke Wartburg’s 27 year streak of conference titles and snapped a 220 match conference winning streak. Miller was also named ARC and NWCA Division III Coach of the Year.
Miller wrapped up his fourth season as head coach at Loras in March. He led the team to a runner-up finish at the 2019 NCAA Championships. He coached nine All-Americans in his first three seasons and was set to increase that total before the 2020 tournament was canceled. The team was ranked 2nd going into the 2020 championships. Congratulations to TJ Miller, the d3wrestle.com Coach of the Year.
