FEVER: Indiana Names Jessica Miller as Assistant Coach
INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana Fever have announced the addition of Jessica Miller as an assistant coach for the 2017 season. It is Miller's first WNBA coaching position, after serving the past ten seasons in an operations and video capacity with the Chicago Sky. First-year Fever coach Pokey Chatman brings Miller from her staff in Chicago where she spent the past two years as the club's video coordinator and aided in player development. Currently coaching with DJK Brose Bamberg in Bamberg, Germany, Miller managed opponent scouting operations and video coaching with the Sky, participating in daily practices at home, and on the road. A captain and four-year starter at Illinois-Chicago, Miller helped the Flames to the WNIT before playing overseas with DJK Brose Bamberg, from 2010-15. After five years playing with the team, she is finishing her first season as an assistant coach. "I'm excited about adding Jessie to our coaching staff," said Chatman who spent the past six seasons leading the Sky. "Having watched her grow over the past six years, I am confident she will impact our opponent scouting/preparation, player development, and in-game strategy. She understands the league and will be key as we continue to build on the success of our franchise." Miller received a B.S. in kinesiology from UIC in 2010. She has continued post-graduate coursework in Bamberg.
A WNBA playoff participant in 12 straight seasons and 13 times since 2002, the Indiana Fever have reached at least the conference finals eight times in the past 12 years - including WNBA Finals appearances in 2009 and 2015, and a WNBA championship in 2012.
