By Eric Chumbler
MCCRACKEN COUNTY - McCracken County High School's varsity baseball head coach Geno Miller has been named the next Activities Director at McCracken County High School. The Activities Director search committee, led by McCracken County High School Principal Michael Ceglinski, offered Miller the job Thursday evening.

"We are excited to have Geno Miller at the helm of our Activities Department," said Ceglinski. "He is a proven winner and his teams continue to represent our school well, and we know that his leadership will have a strong impact on all of our programs as they strive to be the very best they can be."

"I'm very honored and excited to have the opportunity to lead the Activities Department at McCracken County High School," Miller said Thursday night. "This is a great time to be part of the activites at McCracken County High School; we have great group of coaches and student athletes and I want to work hard to make sure each and every one of them are successful in the classroom and in their respective activities outside the classroom."

When asked for his thoughts on transitioning from his baseball coaching position at the end of this season to become the Activities Director, Miller mentioned that he plans to take the same mentality into his new job as he did his current coaching job.

"I love to compete, but I will also be competing in this new role as well," Miller said. "I want every activity associated with McCracken County High School to be competitive and be the best it can be. This school has some of the best coaches and students in the state and I'm excited to get to work with each and every one of them."

Miller will continue to coach the Mustangs baseball team through the rest of the regular season and postseason before assuming the new position on July 1st.

In almost 17 complete seasons as a varsity baseball coach, Miller has collected 495 wins to only 157 losses. That's a 76% winning percentage and an average of just under 30 wins per season.

Miller started his baseball coaching career at Covington High School in 2003 where he won the Tennessee High School Baseball State Championship in 2006. To move closer to family in 2008, Miller accepted the baseball head coaching position at Lone Oak High School, where Miller won two 1st Region Baseball Championships in five seasons with the Purple Flash.

Then in 2013, Miller became the inaugural head baseball coach at McCracken County High School. In nearly six complete seasons with the Mustangs, Miller has collected 189 wins to only 39 losses for an 83% winning percentage and five consecutive 1st Region Championships in only five years as a program. The Mustangs have also made the KHSAA State Baseball Semifinals three years in a row.

When asked about coaching the remainder of this season while being named the next Activities Director, Miller made it clear that he's the head baseball coach at McCracken County until this season is over.

"I'm going to give these kids everything I have until the very last pitch of the season," Miller said. "This is a great group of kids to coach and I'm excited to see what happens over the next few weeks."
