Mark Miller retiring after 32 years as head football coach at Rochester

Mark Miller is retiring as the head football coach and Athletic Director at Rochester High School after 32 seasons.

Miller led Rochester to its only state championship in 1987, compiling 208 wins, five sectional titles and two regional championships during his three decade plus campaign.

Miller has told me before each football season for the last several years, this may be my last. He finally told the truth this time!

Miller will also step down as the school's Athletic Director, but not immediately.

He and his wife plan to move to Jacksonville, FL where their two sons now live. Mark's son Marcus was just named the head football coach at Englewood HS in Jacksonville.

"I am also encouraging Peyton Manning to look at the Jags as a possibility so I have a team to root for!!!!!" Miller joked in an email.

Miller posted a fantastic 208-123 record in his 32 years at Rochester. He took over the program in 1981. They won just three games in his first three seasons as head coach.

Two years after that, Miller led the Zebras to their first ever Sectional Title in 1985. And then, two years after that--they won the state championship in 1987.
