A little more help for the receivers and tight ends may be coming

The Arizona Wildcats are now one practice into their spring slate, and Rich Rodriguez is currently the wide receivers coach.

No, really.

“I think they were probably more nervous about what they were gonna do than what actually happened,” Rodriguez said slyly after the practice. “I may take the wideouts the rest of spring; I don’t know, we’ll see.”

One person that Arizona is looking at to help coach the receivers is former player Terrence Miller, who played at UA from 2009-13. You can see him standing next to Rodriguez in the video above.

“We’re trying to get him as our offensive GA (graduate assistant),” Rodriguez said of Miller’s current role with the team. “Gotta get him in school, that’s the first challenge. So while we’re a guy short, he’ll help us on the field, and hopefully he’ll eventually get accepted in school and be a GA for us.”

According to Miller’s Facebook, his current job title is “Route Engineer and Hands Specialist” working “under the supervision of Rich Rodriguez and Staff”.

Miller caught 95 catches during his Wildcat career, racking up 1,117 yards and three touchdowns.

After the 2014 NFL Draft, Miller signed with the New York Jets, but was unable to latch on anywhere in the league.

He has a variety of experience and has been trying to get into the coaching game, so hopefully this will be an opportunity that works out for everyone.
