Offensive Quality Control/Assistant Running Backs: Trent Miles


Trent Miles came to Philadelphia as a coaching intern during training camp in 2017 and was elevated to coaching assistant during the regular season. In the 2018 offseason he was promoted to offensive quality control/assistant running backs.

Miles began his coaching career at his alma mater, Indiana State, in 1987. Following a number of coaching positions, including a stint as the assistant wide receivers/quality control coach with the Green Bay Packers in 2000, Miles returned to Indiana State for his first role as head coach in 2008. Miles went on to lead the 2010 Sycamores to a 6-5 mark for the school's first winning record since 1996 and was recognized as Missouri Valley Coach of the Year. The Terre Haute, Ind., native was named a finalist for the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year and the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year honor, along with being named AFCA Regional Coach of the Year in 2010 and 2012.

Following his time at Indiana State, Miles served as head coach at Georgia State from 2013-2016, where he was named Sun Belt Coach of the Year in 2015 after guiding the Panthers to their first-ever AutoNation Cure Bowl.

Miles is a 1987 graduate of Indiana State with a degree in criminology. He was a wide reciever for the Sycamores from 1982-86, playing on the 1983 and 1984 squads that each won nine games and reached the FCS playoffs. The 1984 Sycamores were ranked No. 1 in the nation for much of the season, and the team was inducted into the Indiana State University Hall of Fame in 2002.

Miles is married to Bridget Miles, and the couple has three daughters, Kaylee, Anna, and Charlie Elizabeth, and one son, Noah.
