Josh Miller is in his fifth year with the Hamilton College coaching staff as the defensive coordinator and he also oversees the secondary. In 2017 he coached two all-NESCAC team selections including a linebacker who made the first team. One of his defensive backs was placed on the second team.

One of Miller's defensive linemen made the all-NESCAC first team in 2016. In 2015 three of Miller's players finished in the top 10 on the NESCAC's total sacks list. He guided one player to all-conference, D3football.com all-region and Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III all-star teams on defense in 2014.

Before coming to Clinton, Miller spent five seasons at Alfred University, including three as the program's head junior varsity coach. His responsibilities with the Saxons included coaching the linebackers, defensive linemen and defensive backs.

During Miller's time at Alfred, the Saxons made two NCAA playoff appearances (2009, 2010) and played in three ECAC postseason games (2011-13). He coached players who earned all-conference recognition seven times, all-region accolades twice and all-America honors once. In 2013, Alfred's defense ranked 16th in Division III in turnovers forced and fifth in interceptions thanks in part to Miller.

Miller graduated from St. Lawrence University where he played four seasons for the Saints. He started at outside linebacker and made the Liberty League all-academic team three times. He earned his bachelor's degree in history and his master's degree is from Alfred.
