Seven-time all-American Anna Miller will join the Wildcats women's swimming and diving program as an assistant coach, Northwestern head coach Jimmy Tierney announced Friday.

"Anna will bring a tremendous skill set to NU, one that she has honed as an athlete and a professional," Tierney said. "She has a great perspective on what it takes to develop a champion in the pool while also facing the challenges of excelling in the classroom and in the community at a wonderful institution like Northwestern."

Miller is a 2009 graduate of Georgia, where she was a member of both the 2005 NCAA championship squad and the 2006 SEC championship team while competing from 2004-08. A two-time Olympic Trials qualifier and team captain as a senior in 2008, Miller earned academic honors in all four of her collegiate seasons, as well.

Miller spent the summer of 2011 as the national team intern with USA Swimming, assisting with all duties performed by the High Performance Team including filming, race analysis and coach/athlete support.

After her summer with USA Swimming, Miller joined another national power, Virginia, from 2011-13 as an assistant coach working primarily with the middle distance freestylers, stroke and individual medley swimmers in addition to assisting in recruiting efforts.
