Shannon Miller, the 2003 AHCA Coach of the Year, is internationally renowned coach, who led the University of Minnesota Duluth women's hockey team to three consecutive NCAA Championship titles (2001, 2002, 2003), in only four years at the helm.

Miller, who started the UMD Division I program, has made history by guiding the Bulldogs into National Championships every year and capturing the first three NCAA Championship titles ever played in women's hockey. Due to this tremendous accomplishment Shannon Miller and the Bulldogs have been invited to the White House two times to be honored by President George W. Bush.

"I know something about sports and it takes a great coach to win the national title. And this team has an extraordinary coach," praised President Bush on Miller's accomplishments.

Miller has become the most successful coach in the world of women's hockey, achieving great success at the international level and breaking records in women's college hockey. Prior to the success with the Bulldogs Miller coached Team Canada for seven years, winning the major competitions for six out of those seven and was the first female head coach to ever coach a women's Olympic hockey team anywhere in the world. In those seven years with the national team, Miller directed Canada to a silver medal in the 1998 Winter Olympic Games and to three consecutive gold medals at Women's World Ice Hockey Championships (1992, 1994, 1997). She also coached Canada to gold-medal finishes at both the 1995 and 1996 Pacific Rim Championships as well as the Three Nations Cup tournament in 1996

A native of Melfort, Saskatchewan, Miller competed in four Canadian National Championships as a player (1982-85) before retiring in 1989. She holds a bachelor's degree in physical education from the University of Saskatchewan (1985) and from 1988-96 was employed as a police officer in Calgary, Alberta. After seven years as a police officer, Miller was hired by the Olympic Oval in Calgary, to build the first ever international high performance training program for female hockey. For her groundbreaking successes for female sports in Canada, Miller was given the prestigious Canadian Advancement of Women in Sport Award after the 1998 Olympics. Last year Miller was honored by the Calgary Flames NHL organization for her global pioneer work in the game of hockey.
