BENTON – Bob Miller hopes to be back on the sidelines some where next football season.
It just will not be at Fairfield High School.
Miller, the longest tenured football coach in Elkhart County, has announced his retirement from coaching both football and track and field at Fairfield.
Miller, a Fairfield graduate, went 93-78 in 16 seasons in charge of the Falcons. He guided Fairfield to its lone sectional championship in program history in 2009. Miller also directed the Falcons to NECC titles in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2013 and 20-15.
Miller led his program to three straight undefeated regular seasons from 2006-08 as the Falcons went 31-0. He was also the longtime boys and girls track coach before taking a “leave of absence” from the program this Spring.
Miller said that he is not retiring from coaching football and track for good, but just retiring as coach at Fairfield.
Fairfield went 1-9 during the 2017 season.
Fairfield is accepting applications for the football coaching position through April 27.
