Mark Miller Print E-mail
The first Falcon QB to earn All-America honors, Mark Miller was also the first BG signal caller to throw for more than 2,000 yards in a season, achieving both marks as a senior in 1977. He led the Falcon offense all four years, steadily improving his output each season. His 164 completions in 1977 also established a school record. Despite the All-American nod from the Football News Agency, Miller was bypassed on both the first and second team All-MAC rosters, after earning a berth on the second team in 1976.

His 851 passing attempts and 455 completions both set new Falcon records by the time is playing career wrapped up, as did his 38 touchdowns and 5,919 passing yards. One of four Falcons to be named Academic All-MAC in 1977, Miller also received an NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship, and participated in the Canadian-American Bowl. The two-time Team MVP was drafted in the third round of the 1977 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns, where he played two seasons. He played the 1980 season with the Green Bay Packers before finishing his pro career playing three years with the Michigan Panthers of the USFL.

He returned to Bowling Green in 1983, serving as wide receivers coach under Denny Stolz, eventually taking on the quarterbacks and tight ends and serving as offensive coordinator for the 1987-88 seasons. His last year on the Falcon sidelines was 1989. Miller later served as color commentator on Falcon radio broadcasts.

He was inducted to the BG Athletic Hall of Fame in 1983.
