Red Miller, who led Broncos to Super Bowl appearance, dies at age 89

DENVER - Former Broncos coach Red Miller died from health complications on Wednesday morning. 

Miller was 89 years old. 

He suffered a stroke back in September which contributed to his death. 

Miller led the Broncos to their first Super Bowl back in 1977. 

“Our deepest sympathies go out to Red’s entire family, especially his wife, Nan,” Broncos President and CEO Joe Ellis said. “Red was a beloved member of the Broncos’ family. He left a great impact on this franchise by laying the foundation for our championship tradition and was so proud to be part of our first Super Bowl team 40 years ago.

“You could tell how much the Broncos meant to Red, and he’s meant so much to everyone here. Red was overjoyed to get that phone call in May notifying him of his Ring of Fame selection, and we’re all very saddened that he won’t be able to join us when we honor him in November.”
