Date of Birth



Canton, OH


University of Notre Dame (1922-1924)


The 1924 Notre Dame Fighting Irish are remembered for winning the school's first national title and their Four Horsemen backfield. Often forgotten is the line that created those holes for the backfield stars. They too had a nickname: The Seven Mules. Rip Miller was the leader of this line. He was a hard-nosed, aggressive tackle with incredible quickness. Miller hailed from Canton, Ohio, where he helped McKinley High School to three straight unbeaten seasons. Miller was as quick with his brains as he was with his feet. He was presented Notre Dame's top scholar-athlete award. Following his playing career, Miller served as line coach at Indiana and Navy. In 1931, Miller was named head coach at Navy and guided the Midshipmen in their first victory ever over the Irish, a 7-0 triumph in 1933. The following season, Miller relinquished the head coaching duties to Tom Hamilton, preferring to stay on as Navy's line coach. In 1948, Miller was named assistant director of athletics, a position he held until he retired July 1, 1974, ending 48 years' service at the Naval Academy.
