Bill Miller Hired as KU Co-Defensive Coordinator and Linebackers Coach

New, 16 comments

It's official, Kansas has made a move to bolster their defense in the offense happy Big 12.  There are always changes in the offseason in terms of staff and it appears Kansas has made a move and it's expected to be a good one.  Bill Miller defensive coordinator at Louisville has resigned his position to accept a similar one with the University of Kansas.  Miller will act as the Co-defensive Coordinator with Clint Bowen and also handle the Linebackers as a position coach with the departure of Steve Tovar.

Miller, a Hutchinson Kansas native has been all over the country in his career and according to rivals.com the desire to get back to Kansas was a big factor in his decision.  Miller has been defensive coordinator at Oklahoma State, Miami, Michigan State and most recently Louisville.  He also spent time at the University of Florida during the Ron Zook era as both the Linebackers coach and Associate Head Coach.

Miller is expected to bring a lot of experience as well as knack for recruiting to the Jayhawk staff and with the first coaching staff change of the offseason done it will be interesting to see what the Jayhawks do with the vacant defensive line spot.
