Miller attended University of Oregon where he played quarterback for the Oregon Ducks football team. He was considered a risky recruit for higher ranked college teams due to concerns about a knee injury he suffered in high school.
Miller played in 10 NFL seasons from 1987–1995 and 1999. His best year as a pro came during the 1991 season for the Falcons when he threw for over 3,000 yards and 26 touchdowns.
Concussions prevented him from playing longer. After he suffered five in a span of 14 months, he left the league for the first time. A concussion during his comeback with the Denver Broncos in 1999 convinced him that it was best to retire for good. He was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 2005.
Miller was the head coach for South Eugene High School in Eugene, Oregon, from 2001 to 2006. He was also the quarterback coach for the Arizona Cardinals from 2009 to 2012. In 2013, Miller returned to South Eugene as head coach. In 2014, he was named the head football coach at West Linn High School.
