Kenny Miller, who led the St. Anthony Bulldogs to a state baseball championship two seasons ago, has been relieved of his duties as Bulldogs baseball coach.

Miller said he met with St. Anthony High School Principal Greg Fearday and St. Anthony Athletic Director Kevin Palmer Friday over the noon hour.  He said he was presented a letter stating that due to "unprofessional conduct" his services as coach were no longer required as of that day.  Miller will be paid for the balance of his contract.

Miller said he's disappointed because he was given no details as to why he was being removed as coach.  He said neither Palmer nor Fearday would say what was the reason for the move.

Miller said he was asked to resign, but said he felt if he did, it would be like he was admitting he'd done something wrong.  He also said he contacted his players to make sure they knew he hadn't quit on them.

We left a voice mail message with Kevin Palmer Friday night, but did not receive a reply prior to the posting of this story.

Miller said if he had been given a reason for his dismissal, he could say "alright, maybe we need to part company", but said he was given no such reason.

Kenny Koenig has been serving as assistant baseball coach at St. Anthony this fall, so it's presumed he has taken over coaching duties.
