He’s been assistant at East Tennessee State, Wichita State, Tulsa, Mississippi, Duke, N.C. State, Central Florida and with the NFL’s Buffalo Bills.

“We’re really excited about Miles and the experience he brings. We had a fairly young staff and young head coach in coach Collins. To have someone like Miles that brings that kind of experience gets you excited about the future of Hough football can bring.”
Hough was 10-2 last season under Bobby Collins, who resigned after going 25-20 in four seasons. Collins, 19-5 in his final two years, is now head coach at Lancaster High.
