James Howard Miller (February 1, 1920 – October 16, 2006) was an American football player and coach. A native of Massilon, Ohio, he served as at the head football coach at Niagara University from 1949 to 1950, at the University of Detroit from 1959 to 1961, and at Boston College from 1962 to 1967. Before going to Detroit, he worked for five years as an assistant coach at Purdue University, where he had played as a guard. After an 8–2 season at Boston College in 1962, Miller signed a new three-year contract with a substantial pay hike. On December 7, 1967, after a 4–6 record, he resigned as Eagles head coach.
