NFL V.P. of security Milt Ahlerich retired last week after 16 years on the job, only a few months after presiding over the Brett Favre investigation. (I probably would have retired after dealing with that one, too.) NFL spokesman Greg Aiello has announced via Twitter that Ahlerich will be succeeded by Jeff Miller.
Miller, the former Commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police, joined the NFL in 2008. Among other things, he implemented the in-stadium fan code of conduct.
During Miller’s tenure with the Pennsylvania State Police, members of the Steelers allegedly fired illegal assault weapons from the evidence room at the Greensburg state police facility. Aiello said last year that Miller didn’t know about the incident until two years after it occurred.
