Pat Miller, who led the University of Utah to nine NCAA skiing championships, died Saturday in Casper, Wyo., at age 64, following a recent illness.
A Salt Lake City resident, Miller died while visiting his brother, Jim. The two were inducted together into the Athletic Hall of Fame at Fort Lewis College in Colorado, where they were All-America skiers.
Pat Miller joined the Ute staff in 1974 as an assistant coach. He became the men's head coach in 1976 and added the responsibilities for the women's team two years later. Miller won a national title with the men's team in 1981 and collected eight more championships after the men's and women's competitions were combined. In a six-year stretch in the 1980s, the Utes won five titles and finished second the other year.
