Illinois hires Bart Miller as offensive line coach

It’s Miller’s second time on a Bielema staff.

Bret Bielema has made his second hire as Illinois’ head coach.

Bart Miller will be his offensive line coach, joining Bielema for the second time after being Wisconsin’s OL coach during part of his time at Wisconsin.

Miller had most recently been offensive line coach and Offensive Run-Game Coordinator at Wyoming for two seasons.

“Bart was able to show early in his career how effective he is as a teacher and motivator of young men,” Bielema said in a statement. “As a young coach I hired him as an offensive line coach and he helped us capture our third consecutive Big Ten title. Bart has Midwest roots and will help us recruit and keep Illinois players at home wearing the Orange and Blue. We are very excited to have Bart join our Illini family.”

In 2019, Miller’s Wyoming line was named to the Joe Moore Award Honor Roll, honoring the top collegiate offensive line unit in the nation.

Miller’s been around since his time at Wisconsin; he’s also coached lines at Ohio, Air Force, Minnesota, FAU, and New Mexico State, which is his alma mater.
