Maurice “Moe” Miller, who played more than 100 career games at Georgia Tech, has been tapped to lead the boys basketball team at Arlington High School.

Miller comes to the Tigers from Raleigh Egypt High School, where he led the team from three wins his first season in 2015 to a 24-7 record this year. A Raleigh Egypt alum himself, Miller said he had to develop his players from the ground up. “It’s been a grind, but it’s been very rewarding watching those players grow into young men and great athletes. I’ve loved Raleigh Egypt and the players here, but I’m excited to bring my knowledge of the game to Arlington.”

After a four-year season with Georgia Tech, Miller played in professional basketball leagues and clubs across Europe before returning home to Memphis. He has also served as an assistant coach at Lausanne Collegiate School.

“Arlington is a sleeping giant,” he said. “Arlington has a strong reputation for academicsCoach Moe Miller. Couple that with the talent we have here and my connections, I think we have something special on the horizon.”

He’s also not afraid to put his own sweat into the game. The 31-year-old said he’s looking forward to showing his players techniques to make their game stronger. “I can still jump, dribble, shoot and dunk,” he laughed. “I can not only tell you how to do something but I can show you. I think that’s what helped my players at Raleigh Egypt, and I think it will help in Arlington too.”

Miller replaces Donald Deaton, who retired from coaching at the end of this season.

Welcome to Arlington, Coach Miller!
