The Bossier Bearkats high school football program will have a local rooting interest beginning this fall.
Justin Miller, a 2012 graduate of Ruston High and a standout offensive lineman at Grambling’s Tigers, has been hired as the Bossier offensive line coach, according to a Twitter announcement Wednesday by Bossier principal David Thrash.
Miller will work for new head coach De’Aumante Johnson, 27, who was hired in mid-June to replace veteran coach Mike Concillio. Miller will also work with another former Tiger, Charles Wright, a Monroe-Ouachita product who played quarterback for Broderick Fobbs at Grambling from 2015-18, appearing in four games in 2017.
The Bearkats are going to a spread offensive scheme after being run-oriented in recent years.
Miller’s offensive line will play a vital role in that conversion.
A standout for the Ruston Bearkats, Miller was a two-time All-Southwestern Athletic Conference first-team performer and a two-time first-team Box-Torrow All-Ameircan in 2015-16 under Fobbs. He helped the Tigers win the 2016 HBCU national championship with a Celebration Bowl win after they captured the SWAC Championship.
Miller transitioned to coaching as a graduate assistant under Fobbs on the 2017 SWAC championship team. The son of Jeff and Gloria Miller has a bachelor’s degree (2016) in sports management and a master’s in sports administration earned in 2017.
