BCU's Miller announces resignation 

SIOUX CITY -- Reggie Miller has announced his resignation as the Briar Cliff head cross country coach and assistant track and field coach for both the men's and women's teams. Miller just completed his fourth season as the head cross country coach and is currently in his seventh season as an assistant coach in track and field.

Miller changed the cross country landscape at the Cliff, with his athletes currently owning eight of the top 10 men's cross country times in school history. He guided two athletes to breaking the school record with Tommy Thelen owning the top spot with a time of 26:17.00 in 2014 and Dalton Demers breaking Thelen's record this season with a time of 26:02.14.

His team's best finish at the GPAC Championships was on the men's side with a seventh-place finish. Miller also aided Thelen, Demers and Mitchell Schleiss to all-conference honors with Thelen and Schleis both being named All-GPAC in 2015 and Demers was selected in 2017. Those three runners are the only three all-conference selections in school history.
