Bobcats hope Miller’s past success can lead to offensive progress

on

BOZEMAN, Montana — Matt Miller used to catch touchdown passes from Kellen Moore at Boise State. Now they exchange professional notes.

In the off-season leading up to each former BSU star’s first seasons as the offensive coordinators for their respective organizations, the fellow wunderkinds spent a week together in the spring comparing notes on how to operate day to day as two of the youngest offensive coordinators in football.

Moore, 31, is in his first season as the offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys. Miller, 28, is in his first full season as the offensive coordinator for the No. 14 Montana State Bobcats, although Miller took over with six games remaining last season. He is the only offensive play-caller in the Big Sky Conference under the age of 30.
