Iolani loses boys soccer coach

Ric Miller retired from his position as Iolani boys soccer coach last week. It was a tough decision for Miller, the Star-Bulletin's coach of the year, who led the Raiders to a spot in the state tournament final last season.

"I feel it is important for me now to commit more time to my family and will now be able to focus on my efforts year-round on club coaching at Mililani Soccer Club," Miller said. "It was a wonderful year and I am very proud of the team's accomplishments, from winning the Hawaii Prep Ka Makani Classic to going undefeated as ILH champions to losing the state final (to Mililani) on penalty kicks."

Miller, a 1976 Iolani graduate who was the state player of the year twice and a member of two state championship teams, is proud to have been able to return to his alma mater. He held the post for one season and the Raiders went 15-1-4.
