TP Miller is replacing Mark Soto as head football coach and athletic coordinator at Johnson High School.

The North East ISD school board unanimously voted Jan. 10 to promote Miller, who has spent the last two years as defensive coordinator with the Jaguars.

Soto resigned in December following two years at Johnson to head the football program and overall athletics at his alma mater, Judson High School.

Miller shared the news of his promotion on his social media and by releasing a statement. He called his new role “a prestige honor.”

“As we transition into a new year full of new beginnings, new roles and new challenges, it is imperative that we continue to come together and support one another,” Miller said.



Miller earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise sports science from Texas State University. He has spent more than 10 years in education. He most recently taught basic fitness and a variety of recreational activities at Johnson High.

Miller graduated from San Marcos High School, where he later served under Mark Soto as a football assistant coach and coached girls track and field.
