Bio

In January 2013, the Chargers hired former Denver secondary coach Ron Milus to coach their secondary.             

Milus spent the last two seasons (2011-12) in Denver. In 2012, the Broncos had one of the NFL’s top defensive units and they led the league in allowing the fewest yards per pass play (6.4). Denver ranked second in the NFL in total defense and third against the pass en route to winning the AFC West with a 13-3 record and earning the top seed in the AFC playoffs. Cornerback Chris Harris returned two of his three interceptions for touchdowns and veteran corner Champ Bailey was selected to the Pro Bowl for the 12th time in his career.               

Milus’ most recent stint with the Broncos was the second of his career. In 2000, he broke into the NFL coaching ranks as the defensive backs coach for the Broncos. A cornerback and return specialist at the University of Washington in the mid-1980s, Milus started coaching at Lincoln High School in his hometown of Tacoma, Washington in 1988. He spent three years coaching defensive backs at Lincoln, earned a graduate assistant’s position working with the outside linebackers at Washington in 1991 and then spent the 1992-98 seasons as the defensive backs coach for the Huskies, who made two Rose Bowl appearances during his tenure. The Huskies led the nation with 22 interceptions in 1993 and they led the Pac-10 with 16 in 1995. In 1999, Milus spent a year coaching defensive backs at Texas A&M before joining the Broncos a year later.  

Milus’ first stint in Denver lasted three years (2000-02) and he subsequently coached defensive backs in Arizona (2003), the New York Giants (2004-05), St. Louis (2006-08) and Carolina (2009-10) before returning to Denver in 2011. Among the highlights from his first stop in Denver, the secondary accounted for 21 interceptions in 2000, its highest total since 1987. In 2001, cornerback Deltha O’Neal earned Pro Bowl honors after tying for third in the NFL with nine interceptions, most on the team and third-most in Broncos history.       

Milus and his wife, Sandra, have two sons: Ryan and Bobby. Ryan runs track at Arizona State and Bobby is a sophomore cornerback at Mesa (Az.) Junior College.
