A pair of standout high school coaches from the state of Alabama will join the Crimson Tide women's basketball coaching staff as head coach Wendell Hudson announced the addition of Tim Miller and Donnie Quinn on Wednesday. In addition, former standout guard Ericka Russell has been named Director of Player Development. Miller recently served as the girls head coach at Bob Jones High School in Madison, Ala., while Quinn led the girls program at Hoover High School in Hoover, Ala.
"We are completing our coaching staff with two coaches that bring a lot of experience to the program," said Hudson. "I am real excited about both of them being added to our staff. In their positions as high school coaches, they have had to do a lot of teaching basketball, which is going to bring a different dynamic to our staff. They'll certainly have a fresh look for us. We are also excited about the addition of Ericka as she has always stood out and was the consummate student-athlete throughout her playing days. We think she is going to be a great fit."
In five seasons at Bob Jones, Miller compiled a 168-18 record while winning three state championships in 2008, 2009 and 2011. Prior to his stint in Madison, he spent seven seasons as the head girls coach at Jefferson Davis High School in Montgomery, Ala., where he finished with a 203-39 record. Under Miller's guidance, the Volunteers won a state championship in 2006, advanced to three final fours and were region champions twice. His success has drawn Miller several individual accolades including being named the National Federation Southeast Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2012 and the National Coaches Association for Women's Basketball Southern Region Coach of the Year in the same seasons. In addition, Miller is a five-time Alabama Sports Writers Coach of the Year, three-time Montgomery Advertiser Coach of the Year and a three-time Huntsville Times Coach of the Year.
