DC United sign goalkeeper Tyler Miller as a free agent

WASHINGTON (November 23, 2022) – DC United have signed goalkeeper Tyler Miller as a free agent. The Black and Reds have signed Miller to a two-year contract until 2024.

“We’re getting a proven MLS goalkeeper who has seven years of experience in this league,” said Dave Kasper, DC United President of Soccer Operations. “He’s a great shot stopper and leader who also has the ability to play with his feet from behind. We look forward to adding Tyler to our roster ahead of 2023 and adding an important slice to our goalkeeping core.”

Miller is moving to Black-and-Red after spending the last three seasons with Minnesota United. The 6-foot-4-inch goalie joined the Loons from Los Angeles FC on January 6, 2020. On March 1, 2020, he made his debut for Minnesota in a 3-1 win over the Portland Timbers. In three seasons, Miller recorded 122 saves and had 12 clean sheets. In 2022, the 29-year-old played three games, his last game for Minnesota being on August 31, 2022.

Prior to joining Minnesota, Miller spent two seasons with Los Angeles FC after being traded from the Seattle Sounders on December 12, 2017. The goalkeeper made his debut for the club in the inaugural season on March 4, 2007, conceding a goal in the 1-0 win over Seattle Sounders. In two seasons, Miller recorded 191 saves and kept 29 clean sheets in 64 MLS games.

Miller was drafted by the Seattle Sounders as the 33rd overall pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft after an impressive collegiate career with the Northwestern Wildcats of the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA). The New Jersey native made 218 saves in 73 appearances over four seasons from 2011-14 for Northwestern. After being drafted by Seattle, Miller decided to join SVN Zweibrücken in the German fourth division and signed with the club on January 10, 2015. The goalkeeper played ten games for the German team before signing with Seattle Sounders 2 on July 9, 2015. Miller made his MLS debut for the Seattle Sounders on March 12, 2016 and recorded seven saves in two games for the team over two seasons before joining LAFC.
