Hugh Freeze added great experience to his Rebel support staff with the addition of John Miller as Assistant Athletics Director for Football Operations in January 2012.

Miller oversees the day-to-day operations of the Ole Miss football office, which includes administrative duties with academics, player development, recruiting, facility management, team travel and other areas.

His behind-the-scenes work has supported the team's improvement on the field, which has resulted in three straight bowl appearances, including a 2014 New Year's Six bowl, his first three years with the program.

Miller came 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.

While overseeing the day-to-day operations of the USM football office, Miller also assisted with all areas of fundraising within the football program and served as Southern Miss' liaison with NFL Scouts and oversaw the player timing days.

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.

After serving for four years in the Army, Miller worked as an assistant coach at Clinton High School under David Bradberry.

A 1999 graduate of Southern Miss, Miller is the son of Walter and Mary Miller of Clinton. He has two sons, Jonathon and Josh.
