Myron Miller has reassumed the football head coaching position at Tustin.

Miller, 72, resigned as Tillers head coach after the 2012 season, his 18th running the Tustin program.

He replaces Winter Welz, who coached the Tillers for 2 1/2 seasons.

Tustin athletic director Tom Giebe said Wednesday that stating Welz was fired would be innaccurate.

"Myron express interest in getting back to head coaching," Giebe said. "We appreciate Winter's service. We just felt that Myron will take the program to the next level."

Miller on Wednesday made it sound like Welz' departure preceded his interest.

"When the job became open," Miller said, "I had to try for it."

Tustin was 8-3 overall and finished second in the Empire League. They were eliminated by Sonora in the second round of the CIF-Southern Section Southwest Division playoffs.

Miller coached Tustin to a CIF-SS championship in 2011. His record at Tustin is 154-69-1. The Tillers won 10 league championships during his tenure.

As for why Miller is returning to head coach, he said, "I think I quit too early."

Miller was an assistant coach this past season at Tustin, working mostly with the defensive line. He was Tustin's freshman football head coach in 2014.
