K-State assistant coach Del Miller announces retirement

The K-State co-offensive coordinator has stepped down after 20 seasons in Manhattan

Tostitos Fiesta Bowl - Oregon v Kansas State

After 20 seasons at the post, Kansas State co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Del Miller has retired.

K-State announced Miller’s retirement Monday morning.

Miller, 66, oversaw the development of a slew of notable quarterbacks in his 20 years under K-State head coach Bill Snyder. Miller first arrived in Manhattan in 1989 as the offensive coordinator.

The move opens the door for former K-State quarterback Collin Klein to return to the coaching staff as the new quarterbacks coach. Though not yet announced by K-State, The Wichita Eagle’s Kellis Robinett reported Sunday that Klein is expected to return to the Wildcat sideline.

Klein previously served as a graduate assistant at Kansas State before departing for Northern Iowa in 2016, where he is currently the quarterbacks coach.

Miller will remain on the K-State staff as a quality control assistant through May, when his contract ends.

Miller left K-State in 1995 for the head coach position at Missouri State, coaching the Bears for four seasons. After assuming a graduate assistant role at K-State in 1999 and serving as the Oklahoma State offensive coordinator in 2000, he returned to Manhattan in 2001 until Snyder’s initial 2005 retirement.

Miller then re-convened with K-State when Snyder came out of retirement in 2009.
