Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa also set seven single-season Maryland records in 2021, including program best marks for passing yards (3,860), completions (328), completion percentage (69.2) and passing touchdowns (26 – ties school record).
Under Miller's tutelage, multiple Maryland tight ends had break-out season in 2021. Chigoziem Okonkwo hauled in 52 receptions for 447 yards and five touchdowns during his senior campaign. He ranked first in the Big Ten in receptions in conference games (41) and second in receiving touchdowns (five). He hauled in 12 receptions against Penn State, marking the second most catches in a game by any Big Ten player in 2021. Okonkwo's 112 receiving yards at Michigan State were the second most by any tight end in a Big Ten game in 2021.
