Miller released a statement to The Tullahoma News Saturday, which reads:

I’d like to say that it was my honor to serve students as an educator in Tullahoma City Schools,” Miller’s statement reads. “My family and I love this community. Professionally, it is time I move forward in another direction. It was a difficult decision, but one that I felt was in the best interest of students, the school and myself. Teachers, Coaches and Administrators frequently move in our profession for career opportunities. My family and I will forever be grateful for the community support and we wish the students and faculty the very best moving froward. I would like to thank Mr. Hargrove, the administration, and the school board for the opportunity to teach here. I am looking forward to the next phase in my career.”
