Member of the Board of Directors
Al Miller, a member of the inaugural
USA Strength and Conditioning 2003 Hall of Fame class, enters his 20th
season as a coach in the NFL and his eighth as strength and conditioning
coach of the Falcons. In his role with the Falcons, Miller develops
and implements the team's workout program which is tailored to the individual
needs of each Falcons player. It is this attention and dedication that
has been one of the biggest factors in helping limit the number of serious
injuries Falcons players incur throughout the season. In a day and age
in which superior conditioning is required year-round, Miller has developed
an off-season program which enables Falcons players to be at their best
from the first day of camp right through the end of the season. In his
previous 19 years of coaching at the NFL level, which has also included
stops with Denver (1985-92) and the New York Giants (1993-96), Miller's
strength and conditioning programs have been crucial building blocks
for the foundation of four Super Bowl teams, including one in Atlanta.
Prior to his NFL ascent, Miller, 57, served as the strength coach for
the University of Alabama under the legendary Paul "Bear"
Bryant from 1982-85. He also worked in that same capacity at Mississippi
State in 1980 and at Northeast Louisiana in 1981.
