Alex Miller is in his fourth season as an assistant coach at UNH and third season in charge of the entire offensive line. After serving as the centers/guards coach in 2011, Miller added the responsibility of tackles to his coaching title in 2012.
The '12 season featured a cohesive offensive front that included All-CAA First Team left tackle Seamus O'Neill, Second Team center Mike Coccia and Third Team left guard Chris Zarkoskie. That core group, joined by right guard Mickey DiLima and right tackle Rob Bowman, started all 12 games. They were feted as the Beyond Sports Network co-Offensive Line of the Week for the Sept. 22 game at Old Dominion when the offense totaled 725 yards of total offense and 61 points. UNH finished 2012 ranked second in the CAA in scoring offense (34.1 points/game), total offense (451.5 yards/game) and first downs (22.1/game) while placing third in rushing offense (220.8 yards/game) and passing offense (230.8 yards/game). The 'Cats registered the league's most prolific red-zone offense (94%), scoring on 47 of 50 trips with 36 TDs and a perfect 11-for-11 in field-goal attemps.
Miller helped orchestrate a unit that included All-New England and All-CAA Second Team guard Ricky Archer in 2011.
Prior to joining the Wildcats, Miller served a three-year tenure at the University of Oregon, where he began as an intern in 2008 before working as a graduate assistant coach for offense in 2009 and 2010. Miller worked closely with the Ducks’ running game and tutored the offensive line.
As a student-athlete, Miller starred as a center at the University of Massachusetts, where he started all 50 games of his collegiate career from 2003-06. The Fairfax, Va., native was feted as an All-America in his senior campaign and was a two-time member of the All-Atlantic 10 First Team.
Miller received his undergraduate degree from UMass in 2007.
