MM 11.30: Maryland co-offensive coordinator Mike Miller to become OC at Charlotte

Maryland co-offensive coordinator will go to Charlotte to become the program’s offensive coordinator, quarterbacks coach and play-caller, first reported by ESPN’s Pete Thamel.

Miller had been with the Terps for four years as the tight ends coach and was recently promoted to the role of co-offensive coordinator, although he wasn’t given the role of calling plays. Before that, he was a graduate assistant for now-Maryland head coach Mike Locksley when Locksley was the offensive coordinator at Alabama and was also a high school offensive coordinator and student coach at Clemson. He played quarterback at UAB, spending three years on the team before becoming a student coach.

Considered an up-and-coming star in the coaching world, Miller named to the American Football Coaches Association’s 35 Under 35 Coaches Leadership Institute in 2021. He received his promotion in the offseason in part because of attempts by other programs to poach him. His coaching ability can be seen through the development of the Terps’ tight ends — still his main position groups — namely Chigoziem Okonkwo, who currently plays for the NFL’s Tennessee Titans.
