Player Profile
Wide Receivers

Trent Miles is in his first season coaching wide receivers at Stanford after spending the 2000 campaign with the Green Bay Packers. Miles, 37, brings with him 13 years of coaching experience on the collegiate level. He was named to the Cardinal staff by head coach Tyrone Willingham on February 26, 2001.

A 1987 graduate of Indiana State University, Miles' coaching career has landed him stops at Indiana State, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Northern Illinois, Hawaii and Fresno State. He was an offensive assistant working with wide receivers and the quality control coach with the Green Bay Packers last season.

Throughout his career, Miles has coached on both sides of the ball, including wide receivers, defensive backs, linebackers and special teams. Last season in Green Bay, he worked with NFL All-Pro receiver Antonio Freeman.

Prior to last year in the NFL, Miles had spent the previous 13 years on the collegiate level. He was the wide receivers coach at Fresno State for three years (1997-99), producing some of the great receivers in Bulldog's history. Two of his receivers in 1999, sophomores Rodney Wright and Charles Smith, combined to produce over 1,600 yards and 14 touchdowns on 120 receptions and earned Wright All-Western Athletic Conference honors in the process. Their production helped the Bulldogs to a share of the WAC championship and a berth in the EA Sports Las Vegas Bowl.

Miles began his coaching career at Indiana State, his alma mater, in 1987, tutoring the wide receivers and defensive backs as a graduate assistant. A grad assistant position followed at the University of New Mexico (1988-89), where he worked with the receivers and linebackers. Miles then moved on to the University of Oklahoma in 1990 to coach the wide receivers as a graduate assistant.

The Terre Haute, Ind., native then headed west to the University of Hawaii for two seasons (1995-96), where he spent a season each with the wide receivers and defensive backs. Miles earlier had been a wide receiver at Indiana State (1982-86), where his 1983 and '84 squads each won nine games and advanced to the NCAA Division 1AA playoffs. The 1984 Sycamores were ranked No. 1 in the nation for most of the season. He earned a B.S. degree in criminal justice from ISU in 1987.

Born July 29, 1963, in Terre Haute, Ind., Miles was an all-state selection as a wide receiver at the city's South Vigo High School, where he also played baseball.
