Brent Miller joined the Washington football staff in the summer of 2009 and will serve as the offensive graduate assistant, specifically working with the UW tight ends.
Miller is certainly no stranger to tight end play as he was a three-year letter winner at Arizona State at the position. He played in a total of 47 games for the Sun Devils from 2004 to 2007, starting 22 over his final two seasons.
During his four-year career in Tempe, Miller totaled 43 receptions for 526 yards and five touchdowns. One of those touchdowns came in the Devils' 2006 game at Husky Stadium, when Miller made a 25-yard catch in overtime to be the Dawgs.
That season, Miller started alongside his brother, All-American Zach Miller. The following year, 2007, he played in 10 games and started nine. He saw a string of 39 straight games played snapped early in the year due to injury. In 2007, he played under then-ASU tight ends coach Dan Cozzetto, who is now the Husky offensive line coach and run game coordinator.
Miller graduated with a bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary studies in 2008. After college, he signed a free-agent contract with the Arizona Cardinals and played in four preseason games. He spent the 2008 season as an assistant coach at his high school alma mater, Desert Vista High in Phoenix. Miller was a 5A all-state player at Desert Vista, graduating in 2003.
Miller's older brother, Zach, currently plays for the Oakland Raiders. He also has a younger sister, Kara, who attends Northern Arizona.
