 Rich Miller, Kansas, Player News

  When Rich Miller transferred to join Kansas football last year, he didn't expect to become the leader he has. Miller, a senior linebacker this fall for the Jayhawks, cautioned Wednesday that it wasn't as if he doubted himself. Miller, among those who followed head coach Lance Leipold from Buffalo, noted he just wanted to be the best version of himself. Miller had never really been much of a vocal leader, and instead led by example - which he described as akin to breathing. But as the months went by, Miller has assumed a more significant role on and off the field at Kansas, and is now someone who he said teammates look to during player-led meetings to say something.

Whether it's then, or maybe in the weight room, Miller has seen teammates respond to what he's had to say. And according to his position coach, Chris Simpson, Miller is a catalyst for their defense and "kind of the heart" of what they are trying to do. "As much as anybody, I think (Miller) is," Jayhawks defensive coordinator Brian Borland concurred. "And just, playing the centerpiece position there at the MIKE linebacker spot a lot of the times. Although, I think he could play any of our linebacker spots equally well. Knows the defense well. Knows what our expectations are. "I think on the field, off the field, I think he's the - kind of a good, model citizen. So, in that respect, I think he, Rich Miller, certainly would be kind of at the center of what we're trying to do." - Topeka Capital Journal

  If Kansas football linebackers coach Chris Simpson is correct, the best days of Rich Miller's college career are just ahead of him, heading into Miller's first season with the Jayhawks. During his first two years playing for Simpson and head coach Lance Leipold at Buffalo, the linebacker from Detroit took on a small but important role as a reserve within the unit's rotation. The speedy Miller appeared in all seven of the Bulls' games as a backup during their 6-1 2020 season, and he finished with 13 total tackles. Simpson doesn't think those numbers do justice to Miller's value. "He doesn't have a ton of stats, quite honestly. And to be quite frank, I had a pretty veteran group in Buffalo," Simpson said recently, while sharing what he likes about the 6-foot-1, 230-pound junior.

When Simpson was still the linebackers coach at UB, he said his position group the past couple of seasons was filled with linebackers whom he considered to be not only good players, but quality leaders and individuals. "And Rich was one of those," Simpson added. Once Miller put his name into the NCAA's transfer portal, Simpson said the appeal of inviting a known and trusted linebacker on board in Lawrence was obvious. Simpson thinks his pupil still has "a lot of time left to showcase what he can do." - Lawrence Journal World
