Miller joins the Rice University staff from Diablo Valley College where he served as an assistant basketball coach and was responsible for strength and conditioning as well as nutrition for the team. Since the late 1970s, Miller has been involved in athletic training for a variety of motorsports teams and drivers. He has been apart of 18 motorsports world championships.
During Miller's tenure at Diablo Valley College (1997-2009), the Vikings won eight conference championships and had 16 student-athletes go on to play for NCAA Division I programs.
Miller first became involved in motorsports in 1978 when he served as athletic trainer and sports medicine consultant for Kenny Roberts, the first American to win the 500cc Road Racing World Championship (1978, 1979 & 1980). He served in the same capacity for Kenny Roberts, Jr., and Team Suzuki's World Grand Prix racing team from 1999-2007. The junior Roberts won the 500cc World Championship in 2000.
