Early years

Josh Miller Josh Miller Previews Steelers vs Patriots CBS Pittsburgh

Miller, who is Jewish, attended East Brunswick High School and East Brunswick Jewish Center (EBJC) in East Brunswick Township, New Jersey. In East Brunswick High School he was an All-State pick in football (playing wide receiver, in addition to handling the duties of punting where he still holds some career records) and track (as a high jumper), as well as playing guard in basketball.

Miller was a high school classmate and football teammate of The Young Turks founder and CEO, Cenk Uygur.

Scottsdale Community College

Miller attended Scottsdale Community College for two years and was a letterman in football with the Fighting Artichokes. He was a two-time All-Western State Football League pick at punter.

Arizona

Miller transferred to the University of Arizona and was a two-year letterman in football. He was an All-Pacific-10 Conference selection and an All-America selection as a senior.

Baltimore Stallions

After graduating from Arizona, Miller spent the 1994 and 1995 seasons playing for the Baltimore Stallions of the Canadian Football League, and was a member of the 1995 Grey Cup champion team. Miller recorded a "single" in the 83rd Grey Cup when a punt, aided by a 50-km/h wind at Taylor Field in Regina, Saskatchewan bounded over the head of a Calgary Stampeders return man and out the back of the end zone to award Baltimore a single point.

Pittsburgh Steelers

In 1996 Miller joined the Pittsburgh Steelers. He stayed with the team through 2003, and continues to make his home in Pittsburgh.

In a 2003 game against the Baltimore Ravens, Miller completed an 81-yard touchdown pass to Steelers' teammate Chris Hope. This tied a record held by Gary Hammond and Arthur Marshall for the longest pass completion by a non-quarterback in NFL history.

New England Patriots

Before the 2004 season Miller signed with the Patriots, with whom he played during the 2004, 2005, and 2006 seasons.

In Super Bowl XXXIX, Miller had two notable punts, one to the Eagles' 7-yard line and another that pinned the Eagles back at their own 4-yard line with just 46 seconds left in the game.

In his career with the Patriots, Miller played in 42 straight regular season games, before being placed on injured reserve on November 24, 2006. Miller was released on August 16, 2007.

Tennessee Titans

On September 21, 2007, Miller signed with the Tennessee Titans due to injuries to Craig Hentrich, and made his debut against New Orleans Saints on September 24, 2007. On December 17, 2007, the Titans released him. He was later re-signed by the Titans on May 23, 2008 only to be released again on August 19, 2008.

The Titans re-signed Miller four games into the 2008 regular season on October 4, 2008. The team released quarterback Chris Simms to make room for Miller on the roster, but two days later Miller was released again as Simms was re-signed.

Post-NFL career

Josh Miller joined KDKA-FM in Pittsburgh as an analyst on July 13, 2010 and also provides commentary for its sister television station KDKA-TV. He now co-hosts The Fan Morning Show with Colin Dunlap and Jim Colony.
