#First44 Day 20: Director of Operations Brandon Miller
Mitchell Retains Fourth-Year Director of Operations
Mitchell was named head coach of the North Texas women's basketball team on April 9, 2015. Between moving back to Denton, getting to know the team and beginning to operate the Mean Green program, Mitchell will be very busy early on in her tenure. We want to give fans an in-depth look at her #First44 days on the job in the form of a 44-part series that will run from April 10-May 23.
Brandon Miller enters his fourth season as director of operations with the North Texas women's basketball program. His responsibilities include handling travel, equipment, scheduling, and video coordination for the team. He is also the liaison for other athletic departments and organizes the Mean Green camps.
"I'm grateful and honored to remain part of the Mean Green family and have the opportunity to work under Jalie," Miller said. "In the few short weeks since her hire, the energy level has been great and I'm eager to assist with her vision for North Texas women's basketball."
Prior to North Texas, Miller was the video coordinator for Clemson from 2010-12 and at Louisville from 2008-10. Miller was on the Louisville staff for the 2008-09 season, when No. 3 seed Cardinals played in the NCAA National Championship game against Connecticut and finished No. 2 in the country. That squad won 34 games and advanced to the Final Four with a 77-60 win over No. 1 seed Maryland.
"Brandon's reputation precedes itself. Before I accepted this job, so many people shared their thoughts about his work ethic, loyalty and efficiency," head coach Jalie Mitchell said. "In this profession, he's well known for his diligence and helpfulness, no matter the time of day."
She continued, "It's a fact that Brandon has been a lifesaver during this transition; he has made it extremely smooth for myself and my staff. I'm very happy to have him stay on as the director of operations and share in our new journey."
In addition to work as video coordinator, Miller has worked various camps at Wake Forest, Penn State, and Florida men's basketball from 2006-08. He graduated from High Point University in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in business administration and sport management, and earned his master's in sport management at the University of Florida in 2007.
