Former Broncos Head Coach Red Miller Passes Away
The Denver Broncos organization has learned that former head coach and 2017 Broncos Ring of Fame inductee Red Miller has passed away this morning.
Robert “Red” Miller was the guy that helped bring the Denver Broncos to their winning ways. His accomplishments as a head coach for this franchise have been nothing short of phenomenal. Now Broncos Country is mourning the loss of this amazing coach.
The Broncos organization has learned that Red Miller passed away Wednesday morning. Complications from a stroke was the cause of his death. He was 89 years old.
Red Miller had an overall record of 40-22 in his four seasons as head coach. In his first year, he led the Denver Broncos to their first ever AFC West title and Super Bowl appearance. He was also responsible for creating the “Orange Crush” defense that dominated offenses during the late 1970s to the 1980 season.
The Denver Broncos organization is set to honor Red Miller during the team’s November 19th home contest against the Cincinnati Bengals by inducting him into the Broncos Ring of Fame.
Some of the more well known Broncos players who played under Red Miller are Tom Jackson, Randy Graidshar, Louis Wright among others.
I know, without even having to watch, how much he meant to the Denver Broncos organization. Imagine the state of the Denver Broncos without Red Miler.
Miller was the big reason why the Broncos got on the map. His tough attitude and his knack for coaching was quite amazing. The fact that in his first three years he led the team to the playoffs was something to be in awe about.
