Browns' Senior Assistant Of Football Operations Retires

CLEVELAND (AP) - Les Miller announced his retirement Wednesday as senior assistant of football operations for the Cleveland Browns after a 34-year career in college and pro football.

Miller, 65, joined the Browns in 1998 after three years as player development director for the St. Louis Rams.

He also worked in player personnel positions for the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers and the World League of American Football.

Miller, a native of Bernice, Okla., played in the New York Yankees minor league system in 1955, spent 10 years as a high school coach, and was an assistant coach with Brigham Young before the Dolphins hired him for his first pro job in 1972.
