The Arizona Wildcats announced Thursday that they have hired UC Santa Barbara director of basketball operations David Miller as their new director of on-campus recruiting and basketball analytics.

It is a homecoming for Miller, who was a student manager at Arizona from 2010-13 and a graduate manager from 2013-15.

“His role in the program included aiding the coaching staff in individual and team workouts as well as various operational and video duties,” according to his UCSB bio.

After his time at Arizona, Miller joined Alabama as its assistant video coordinator, a position he held for a year before he was promoted to director of player development. UCSB then hired him away after former Arizona assistant Joe Pasternack was named head coach.

Here’s how the UA website describes the job duties for Miller’s new position:

  • Primary Video Coordinator for Men’s Basketball
  • Coordinate scouting of opponents with Coaching staff members
  • Serve as the primary liaison with Compliance to all visitors at practices and games
  • Serve as the On-Campus Recruiting Coordinator
  • Assist in all aspects of the day-to-day activities and development of recruiting
  • In consultation with the Assistant Athletic Director, Men’s Basketball Operations Serve as the Point of Contact with Athletics
  • Compliance regarding NCAA, PAC-12 and institutional rules associated with the recruiting process
  • Coordinate with the Compliance Office and oversee all paperwork for all official and unofficial visits
  • Develop Recruiting videos and presentations
  • Coordinate donor related events
  • Provide assistance to the head men’s basketball coach as assigned

Miller’s father, David, spent time as an assistant coach at Arizona, Texas, USC, Eastern Kentucky, and in the NBA with the then-New Orleans Hornets.
