Miles Austin III begins his first season with the New York Jets after joining Robert Saleh's staff as the wide receivers coach on January 21, 2021. For Austin, this is his second season coaching in the league after two seasons in scouting and 10 seasons playing.
Prior to joining the Jets, Austin spent a season with San Francisco (2019) as an offensive quality control coach as the team advanced to Super Bowl LIV. That season, the 49ers finished in the top four league-wide in points per game (29.9) and yards per game (381.1). Before that, he worked as a pro and college scouting intern for two seasons with the Cowboys.
Entering the league as an undrafted free agent, Austin played 129 games (70 starts) over 10 seasons for Dallas, Cleveland and Philadelphia. A two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, Austin finished his career with 361 receptions for 5,273 yards, both top 25 totals in NFL history for an undrafted free agent.
A native of Garfield, NJ, Austin finished his career at Monmouth as the school's all-time leader in receptions (150), receiving yards (2,867) and touchdown receptions (33).
Austin and his wife, Stacy, have three children, Maven, Ava and Miles IV. He started the Austin Family Foundation with a mission to support and promote youth programming in lower income areas with the focus on character development and community involvement.
