Longtime Blacksburg and Boiling Springs assistant football coach Travis Miller has been named head coach at Wade Hampton High School. Wade Hampton announced Miller’s hiring in a ceremony at the school on Tuesday afternoon.

“I’m really excited,” Miller said. “The kids seem really excited, which is great to see. The parents seem supportive and excited. Hopefully we can get off on a great foot and do some good things early.”

This will be Miller’s second stint at the Greenville school. He started at Wade Hampton as an adjunct coach shortly after college

“Some of the same people are there, some familiar faces,” he said. “It’s a great place.”

Miller played at Blacksburg High School, then walked on at Furman, where he played on the 1990 Southern Conference championship team led by Jimmy Satterfield. After his adjunct job at Wade Hampton, he returned to Blacksburg, where in 15 years he served as a football assistant, head basketball, and head boys track coach. He has been an assistant at Boiling Springs for the past six seasons, serving as offensive coordinator.

Miller is looking forward to bringing his spread offensive attack to the Generals.

“We’re going to start with the little things and try to enhance the good things they’re already doing,” he said.
