After 16 years at the helm, Jason Miller has resigned as the head coach at St. John’s. The school announced the move on Wednesday afternoon.

In an official release, the school announced that assistant coaches Chris Fisher and John DeTommaso will serve as interim co-head coaches during the transition.

“We sincerely thank Coach Miller for his decade and a half of service to St. John’s Athletics,” said Athletic Director Mike Cragg.  “Jason’s dedication to his student-athletes both on and off the field of competition has greatly benefitted countless young men in so many facets of life.”

During his 16 seasons in Queens, Miller led the Red Storm to an overall record of 67-145. The Red Storm went 2-12 during the 2022 season.

The lone two winning seasons of the Miller era came in 2012 (8-7) and 2013 (9-4). That 2012 season saw the Red Storm reach the Big East Tournament for the first and only time in program history, beating Notre Dame in the semifinals before advancing to the title game where they fell to Syracuse. The Red Storm beat a top-ranked Notre Dame team during the 2013 season, marking their first-ever win over a No. 1-ranked team.

Miller’s departure creates the first opening of the 2022 coaching carousel.
