Jim Miller is expected to return for a second season as a television analyst for Chicago Bears preseason games and now it looks like he will have an expanded role with the franchise.

The Detroit News reports Miller, the former quarterback, is leaving his position as the radio analyst for Michigan State football games to take a “communications position” with the Bears. A Bears spokesman said last month that the three preseason games broadcast by the team was expected to include Sam Rosen and Miller in the booth, the same pair that called games last August.

“It was an opportunity Jim couldn’t pass up,” Will Tieman, owner of the Spartan Sports Network, told the Detroit News.

What expanded role Miller will hold for the Bears remains to be seen. In the ongoing expansion project at Halas Hall, the team is upgrading its ability to produce both television and radio programs from the team’s headquarters.
