Seymour Community Schools Board of Trustees unanimously fired the high school boys varsity basketball coach Tuesday night.
The 12-year tenure of Scott Miller came to an end after being given the option to resign this past Friday or face termination.
Miller said his players never quit on him this season, and he wasn't going to quit on the team.
Miller started with the Owls in the 2001-2002 season. He led the school to a 123-132 record, including four winning seasons. The Owls finished 2-19 this year.
In an interview Tuesday afternoon, Miller confirmed that last week he was given the option to resign or be fired when the Seymour Community Schools Board of Trustees convened for its March meeting.
Miller said he intends to remain in his position as a high school social studies teacher at least through the end of this school year.
Athletic Director Brandon Harpe said he could not comment on personnel matters.
