Mills comes to his new post from Ypsilanti High School, where he served in a similar capacity. Mills is the former men's head basketball coach at Tusculum College in Greeneville, Tennessee, and prior to that, Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, Georgia, compiling a 192-144 record over 12 years.

"My father-in-law became ill and I told my wife [Tybe] that if she got a teaching job closer to her parents [in Michigan] I'd put my resignation in," Griff Mills says of his decision to leave college coaching. The newspaper's Mickey Alvarado adds, "His wife wound up getting a teaching position at a Ypsilanti Middle School and that's when everything else fell together for his family. 'It just so happened that a couple of weeks later there was an assistant principal/athletic director job open there. I interviewed for that, got the job, and have been the AP/AD at Ypsilanti High School for the last two years.'"
