Lake Dallas ISD has named Brian Miller as the new head coach of the varsity Falcon boys basketball program, bringing in a leader with a winning record to a program looking to break through into the postseason.

Coach Miller has served in the same position at Lewisville High School since 2018, where he immediately found success. He inherited a team that had finished with a 6-20 record the previous season and led the team to an immediate turnaround with a 26-9 record in his first season, its best single-season win total since 2007-08. In each of his three seasons at Lewisville, the team finished with a winning record and earned at least 16 wins.

“I’m excited about being here and having the opportunity to build the program up, because I know this is a great community,” Coach Miller said. “I plan to hit the ground running with our summer programs and transition into a fall league. There’s going to be a lot of opportunities for kids to get involved in the gym to better themselves and help our program grow.”

He plans to begin implementing his stamp on the Falcon program next month, as it will take part in a summer league and offer other conditioning.

Prior to his time at the helm of the Lewisville program, Coach Miller led programs at Haltom (2015-18), Weatherford (2013-15) and Bridgeport (2010-13) high schools. At Haltom, he led the team to its most wins in a season in over a decade by his last season at the school, improving each season. Prior to his time as a head high school coach, he was an assistant high school coach from 2006 to 2010.

Before beginning his professional career, Coach Miller played basketball for the SMU Mustangs, where he earned his bachelor’s degree.
