He attended Whitehall High School in Pennsylvanias Lehigh Valley region. He was a standout high school football player for Whitehall, which played in the highly competitive East Penn Conference (now known as the Lehigh Valley Conference).He was recruited from Whitehall High School by Pennsylvania State University, where he became an All-American defensive tackle for the Nittany Lions.NFL careerFollowing his career at Penn State, Millen entered the 1980 NFL Draft and was selected by the Oakland Raiders with the drafts 43rd overall selection in the second round.During his 12-year NFL playing career, Millen played for the Raiders, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Washington Redskins. He won a Super Bowl with each of these teams, including two with the Raiders (one when the team was based in Oakland and one during their stint in Los Angeles). He won one Super Bowl each with the 49ers and Redskins, though he was de-activated for Super Bowl XXVI while with the Redskins.During his NFL career, he was selected to play in one Pro Bowl (in 1988). Millen finished his 12 NFL seasons with 11 sacks and 9 interceptions, which he returned for 132 yards, and 8 fumble recoveries. He also returned 7 kickoffs for 72 yards. Tackles were not recorded at that time.Television and radio careerFollowing his professional football career, Millen worked as a color commentator for CBS TV (which teamed him with Sean McDonough, Paul Olden, Mike Emrick, and Tim Ryan), and for Fox (which teamed him with Dick Stockton). He also provided game analysis for the radio broadcasts of Monday Night Football, working alongside Howard David on CBSs Westwood One radio network.At Fox, Millen came to be considered the number-two analyst for its nationally-broadcast games, behind John Madden (who had been teaming for years with Pat Summerall). He filled in for Madden, alongside Summerall, on the 1997 American Bowl game because John Madden had fears of flying.Millen returned to broadcasting when he served as a studio analyst for NBCs coverage of Wild Card Saturday, his first television appearance in an analyst role since the 2000 NFC Divisional Playoffs, and reprised that role for NBC on their coverage of Super Bowl XLIII.On June 15, 2009, Millen was named the lead analyst for the NFL Networks Thursday Night Football telecast, replacing Cris Collinsworth. He was also a color analyst for ESPN College Football telecasts, teaming with Sean McDonough and Holly Rowe.Detroit Lions managementIn 2001, Millen left broadcasting to assume the job of the Detroit Lions CEO and de facto general manager. At that time, Millen had no prior player development or front office experience. When first approached by owner William Clay Ford, Sr. about the job, Millen told him Mr. Ford, I really appreciate this, but Im not qualified. Ford responded Youre smart. Youll figure it out.Millen was the Lions CEO for seven full seasons, from 2001–07, during that time, the club compiled a record of 31-81 (with at least nine losses each season). Detroits .277 winning percentage was among the worst ever compiled by an NFL team over a seven-year period, only the Chicago Cardinals of 1939-45 (10-61-3, .141) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of 1983-89 (26-86, .234) were less successful.During the early part of Millens tenure (2001–2003), the Lions failed to win a road game for three years (0–24) before opening the season with a win at the Chicago Bears in 2004. Overall, the Lions are 8–50 on the road since 2001. Millen himself admitted to an interviewer in 2008 that the teams record under his leadership has been beyond awful. The Wall Street Journal said that NFL executives admit in private that Millen has made more bad draft decisions than anyone else in two centuries.Despite the teams record on the field, Millen was the second-highest paid general manager in the NFL. With a draft record that included a number of high first-round draft picks who were considered poor choices (Charles Rogers, Joey Harrington, and Mike Williams among them), and widespread disappointment among fans, the media, and even some players, Millen received a five-year contract extension from Ford at the start of the 2005 season. Following the teams 3–13 performance in 2006, Ford announced that Millen would be retained as General Manager for at least another season, because, according to inside sources to the Ford family, they still believed that Millen was the best GM that the Lions ever had. On September 24, 2008, Millen was confirmed to no longer hold his positions with the Lions. Whether he was dismissed or resigned was unclear. It was later reported by a team official that Millen was actually fired.Competition committeeMillen was named to the NFL competition committee on August 4, 2006.Fire Millen movementAngry Detroit Lions fans organizing a Fire Millen protest in 2005.The chant began to spread during a college basketball game between Michigan State and Wichita State at The Palace of Auburn Hills on December 10, 2005.

The following night in Los Angeles, in an NBA game between the Detroit Pistons and Los Angeles Clippers, the chant surfaced late in the 4th quarter at the Staples Center. The chant had also been heard during various Detroit Red Wings home and away games, and during a college basketball game between Michigan and UCLA. Former Pistons power forward Rasheed Wallace even took part in the chant during a late timeout in a December 16, 2005 game against the Chicago Bulls. A Fire Millen sign was shown in the background of a February 3, 2007 broadcast of ESPN College GameDay at the University of Kansas. One large sign with the Fire Millen slogan was removed by NCAA officials at the NCAA Division II National Football Championship in Florence, Alabama.Fire Millen turned up in a background sign in the sports-oriented comic strip Gil Thorp on February 20, 2006 (Detroit News columnist Neal Rubin took over as the writer of Gil Thorp in 2004).Rival Green Bay fans insisting the Lions Keep Millen.The Fire Millen chant returned in force to Ford Field during the second half of the 2006 Thanksgiving Day game between the Detroit Lions and the Miami Dolphins, when former Lions quarterback and first round pick Joey Harrington (often a scapegoat for the Lions problems) led the Dolphins to a 27-10 victory over the Lions, dropping the Lions record to 2-9. More Fire Millen chants were heard at wrestling events, namely WWEs WrestleMania 23 held at Ford Field, and TNAs Bound for Glory.

Despite this, the elder Ford claimed he had no plans to dismiss Millen.However, on September 24, 2008, Millens tenure as team president and general manager ended. Lions owner William Clay Ford later announced that Millen had been relieved of his duties as Lions General Manager and Team President. The Lions would finish the 2008 season with a record of 0-16 and would not win again until Week 3 of the 2009 season.Millen takes responsibilityOn the January 3, 2009 edition of NBCs Football Night in America, Millen admitted his role in the teams downfall, saying he would have fired himself after the 2008 season.
