LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Longtime PRP baseball coach Bill Miller died Monday, a spokesperson for Jefferson County Public Schools confirmed.
JCPS tweeted the following statement from PRP Principal Kim Salyer:
According to Salyer, Miller graduated from PRP in 1967. He taught health and physical education at PRP beginning in 1972.
This was his 39th year as PRP's baseball coach. During Miller's time, PRP won six state titles, including in 2017.
Coach Miller was inducted into the KHSAA Hall of Fame on Saturday.
"Coach Miller was a very special person," Salyer said Tuesday. "To us, and I think to many he was high school baseball. When you think of high school baseball one name comes to mind and that is Bill Miller. His influence in life will never be forgotten."
He was the winningest baseball coach in Kentucky's history.
