Denver LB Miller Gives High Praises to Falcons’ DC Smith After Super Bowl 50
Prior to becoming Atlanta's defensive coordinator, Richard Smith was the Denver Broncos linebacker coach from 2011-14.
Smith’s time in Denver was mostly spent developing young players like Von Miller, who was recently named Super Bowl 50 MVP.
Following Sunday’s game, Smith’s former player made sure he took the time to show his appreciation for his former coach and his influence.
Von Miller just said that Falcons DC Richard Smith developed him into the player he is today. Pretty impressive compliment #RiseUp— FalconsKelsey (@FalconsKelsey) February 8, 2016
Miller told the AJC’s D. Orlando Ledbetter that if it weren’t for coaches like Smith, he wouldn’t be where he is today.
“I can remember the first coaches that believed in me; coach (John) Fox and coach (Richard) Smith,” Miller said to Ledbetter. “If it wasn’t for coach Smith and coach Fox – those guys are no longer with us – but if it wasn’t for those guys instilling what it means to play in the National Football League, I probably wouldn’t be here today.”
