Wisconsin Lutheran Warriors head football coach Dennis Miller has announced his retirement on Thursday. He led the program for the last 19 seasons.
Miller is the founder of the program. He was the first head coach and had to wait two seasons before he coached the team in the fall. 

“I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to serve at Wisconsin Lutheran College for the past 20-plus years,” Miller said. “This is such a special place, with great people and a focused Christian mission. I feel blessed to have been a part of the unique experience of building an intercollegiate football program. When we started this football program over 20 years ago, our goal was to develop a successful Christ-centered program. We have done this through the efforts of a lot of great staff and players and I sincerely thank each one of them. This has never been a job – it has been a joy!”

The last three seasons, the Warriors could not win more than two games each season. They finished with 2-8 records. Miller has not had a winning record with the Warriors since the 2014 season when the team went 7-3
As the Wisconsin Lutheran head coach, he went 74-125 during his tenure. Since moving to the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference during the 2014 season, the program has only had one winning record, which was the aforementioned 7-3 season. 

“We thank Dennis for his outstanding efforts in starting our football program from scratch,” said Director of Athletics Skip Noon. “We also thank him for his leadership not only on the football field, but as an administrator in our department for the past 20-plus years. His impact on student-athletes and staff will forever be a part of Warriors Athletics.”

As a college football head coach, Miller has gone 151-180 between Wisconsin Lutheran and Northern State Wolves. With the Wolves, he went 77-55.
