HOW ACQUIRED: Rights traded from LAFC and signed to a contract through 2022, with a club option in 2023, on January 16, 2020.
One look at Tyler Miller and it’s obvious he’s a goalkeeper. Standing at a rugged 6-foot-4 with hands that look more like oven mitts, Miller’s physicality immediately made him a hot commodity out of high school. As he proved in four years at Northwestern University, Miller’s post-to-post coverage and razor-quick reactions put him on the U.S. youth national team radar as well as those of multiple MLS clubs. After a stellar first season as a starter in 2018, Miller helped LAFC to a Supporters' Shield in 2019.
INTERNATIONAL: Miller was called into Gregg Berhalter's first USMNT January camp. He received his first call-up to the U.S. youth national team system in 2010 with the U18s, and spent time in camp with both the U20s and the U23s.
OUTSIDE MLS: Miller was drafted by the Sounders in 2015, but almost immediately left to sign for German fourth division side SVN Zweibrücken. Miller made 10 appearances there in 2015 before signing for S2 in the summer.
COLLEGE: By the time Miller left Northwestern, he possessed the school’s all-time record for shutouts with 36 in his four years. As a senior in 2014, he led the Big 10 in goals against average (0.56), save percentage (0.853) and shutouts (9).
NOTES: 2019 Supporters' Shield winner.
