The son of ex-South Melbourne player Neville Miller (30 games), Brad was born in Tasmania but moved to Queensland at a young age. He played rugby league until joining Mt. Gravatt, where his junior career developed until he was chosen as captain for Queensland's 2022 Under 18s championship team.

Drafted as a defender, Miller didn't kick a goal until his 17th game. From there he spent nearly all his time forward, only occasionally being used in the backline. After playing regularly in his early days, By 2006 he was starting to fall out of favour, and played in Sandringham VFL premiership side. Just as his career seemed to be winding down, Miller broke back into the senior side, playing his career best game in the Semi Final loss to Fremantle. Late that season he was involved in a heavy collision with Tom Lonergan of Geelong that ended with Lonergan losing a kidney.

Miller played another 16 games in 2007 but failed to recapture his finals form. Sydney made a trade offer at the end of the year, but he stayed at Melbourne and they were rewarded with his best season. He finished amongst the side's leading goalkickers and booting the winning goal in a thrilling win over Brisbane.

At the end of 2009 he was again linked with trades but signed a one year contract extension. He played in Round 1, 2010, but was dropped despite kicking two goals. He didn't return until Round 9, when he kicked a career high five goals in a thrilling win over Port Adelaide. He was soon out of favour again, and even after 10 goals in a game for Casey he wasn't offered a new contract. Offered a final game in Round 22, Miller instead opted to play with Casey in the finals. That year he won their Best and Fairest award.

Richmond drafted Miller at the end of the year, and he debuted with them in early 2011. He played 24 games over two years before retiring at the end of 2012. Miller joined the Northern Football League side Heidelberg for 2013, but returned to Melbourne as a development coach under Paul Roos at the end of the season. He remained in that role until the end of 2015, then joined Greater Western Sydney. In 2016 he coached the Giants' NEAFL side to a premiership, and worked as an assistant coach until the end of 2020. He then became an assistant at Gold Coast for 2022.
