Keith Millard (born March 18, 1962 in Pleasanton, California) is a former American football defensive tackle who played nine seasons for the Minnesota Vikings, the Green Bay Packers, the Seattle Seahawks and the Philadelphia Eagles from 1985 to 1993 in the National Football League. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1988 and 1989. He currently holds the NFL record for most sacks in a single season by a defensive tackle with 18 in 1989, and was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year that season. Early in the following season he suffered a major knee injury causing him to miss the rest of that season. Although he came back to play for several more years, he was never again a dominant force.

Millard played college football at Washington State University and was drafted in the first round of the 1984 NFL Draft and played one season in the USFL.

After retirement as a player, Keith Millard went on to coaching. He coached at the college level and the Spring Football League Los Angeles Dragons and the XFL, San Francisco Demons, before getting a job with the Denver Broncos' coaching staff as the club's defensive line coach/pass rush specialist. He was in charge of creating and implementing all pass rush techniques used in the Broncos' defensive scheme. Under Millard, the Broncos had one of the toughest defenses in the league. Most recently, the Oakland Raiders hired Keith Millard as their Defensive Line Coach. Keith has had great success developing players over the years. He specializes in Pass Rush and Run technique training.

Keith’s large stature was a huge asset in bulking up the Minnesota Vikings defensive line. His All-Pro honors and record-setting sacks make him a Minnesota Vikings great. Millard played in 93 games during his career, making 58 sacks, and two interceptions.
