Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze boasts great experience in his support staff, particularly after the addition of John Miller as Assistant Athletics Director for Football Operations.
Miller comes to Ole Miss after 12 years at Southern Miss, including the final seven as operations director. Prior to that, he worked as an assistant with the recruiting department and also spent time assisting with the defensive backs.
The Golden Eagles received a bowl invitation in all but one of Miller’s seasons in Hattiesburg, including each of the final 10 years. The 2011 squad finished top-20 in the national polls and captured the C-USA Championship.
Before entering the football profession, Miller was in the United States Army, where he worked in the criminal investigation division. He received two Army Commendations, a National Defense Award for Desert Storm and a Cold War Era Award for Desert Storm. (January 26, 2012, Page 7)
