He brings stability, a great work ethic, resourcefulness, and communicates extremely well. He has some familiarity with some states that we'd like to recruit from, which will help us tremendously."

Miller is also an accomplished soccer player on the field, highlighted by playing on the Denver Kickers USASA U23 team that won back-to-back national championships in 2003 and 2004. He played college soccer at Division II and Division III, graduating from Metro State in Denver, Colo. with a bachelor's degree in history.
Keegan will reside in Fond du Lac with his wife Maggie, who will be a librarian in the Oshkosh School District, his 9-year-old daughter Reece, and his 6-year-old son Finnegan.
