NFL Legend Justin Miller Discusses Coaching High School Football in Georgia

In 2007, New York Jets kick returner and cornerback Justin Miller earned the title of the NFL's fastest man by winning the 40-yard dash at the Pro Bowl Skills Challenge. 

Fifteen years later, the high school football players that Miller trains in Georgia still like to see if Miller still has the wheels.

Miller is currently the outside linebackers coach and defensive run game coordinator at Milton High School in suburban Georgia. He also has his own company that provides personal training.

Miller was drafted by the Jets in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft out of Clemson. He played for the Jets, Oakland Raiders, and Detroit Lions during his eight-year NFL career. In 2006, Miller was named to the Pro Bowler and second-team All Pro as a kick returner. He he has five career TDs and nearly 4,000 return yards to his name.

After he retired from the league, Miller’s coaching career began as Pace Academy in Atlanta when fellow NFL Legend Chris Slade was the head coach there.
