Rice joins Miller staff

Former Eisenhower High School football coach John Rice, who resigned in December after three years coaching the Eagles, has found a home on Jeff Steinberg’s staff at Miller, joining the staff as a defensive assistant.

“Jeff and I have talked in the past about being on the same staff together if the opportunity presented itself and it was something we were both interested in,” Rice said. “He’s done a great job of building that program and I’m happy to be a part of it.”

Rice, who has served as a defensive coordinator in previous coaching stops, has worked with Steinberg before, albeit briefly. Rice assisted the Miller defensive staff when Steinberg coached the San Bernardino All-Stars in the 2008 Inland Empire All-Star football classic.
