Buddy is no stranger to athletics in the state of Maine. He played golf, baseball and basketball at Eastern Maine Community College in the early seventies. His baseball team won the Small College Conference Championship in 1971. Since receiving a degree in Business Administration in 1972 he has been involved in coaching at many levels. Buddy focused his attention on golf, baseball and basketball and has coached at the junior high and high school level in S.A.D. #37 and Jonesport-Beals High School. Over the last 15 years Buddy has coached the golf team at Jonesport-Beals High School and has led them to several appearances in the Maine State High School Golf Tournament.
Athletic Director Brac Brady said, "I am very excited to add Buddy Mills to our coaching staff. He brings tremendous energy and enthusiasm for the sport of golf and has a personality for recruiting. He has been in the Maine golf scene for a long time and I look forward to seeing him build our golf program here at UMM."
Buddy resides in Jonesport with his wife Susan.
