In @shocking and stunning@ Saints news this morning, nola.com's Evan Woodbery has reported that the New Orleans Saints' EDFC Doug Miller is movin' on up to a deluxe PR appointment in the luxurious resortland mountains of West Virginny!

I saw this congratulatory tweet from ESPN Saints beat guy/bloggerman Mike Triplett, first:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Congrats to Doug Miller, <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Saints?src=hash">#Saints</a> longtime executive director of football communications, who left to become marketing VP at The Greenbrier.</p>&mdash; Mike Triplett (@MikeTriplett) <a href="https://twitter.com/MikeTriplett/status/569158200215404544">February 21, 2015</a></blockquote>

...and then I backtracked to Woodbery's post on nola.com:

Doug Miller, who was executive director of communications for the New Orleans Saints, has left the club for a position with the Greenbrier resort in West Virginia.

and Miller's new role was described by Evan thusly:

Miller will be vice president of sales, marketing, and promotions at the resort, according to a Greenbrier spokeswoman.

He'll obviously provide serious insider intel on the Saints for The Greenbrier prior to their Training Camp matchup this summer, and now we've got a quote from Doug:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Miller said it&#39;s a &quot;great promotion&quot; with Saints&#39; blessing. Said he&#39;s excited to tell story of &quot;iconic resort.&quot; ...</p>&mdash; Mike Triplett (@MikeTriplett) <a href="https://twitter.com/MikeTriplett/status/569158444722356225">February 21, 2015</a></blockquote>

Miller, whose name is not on the staff listing on the official Saints site, although his bio page from the team site still popped up on an internet search, had been with the Saints since 2006, following a 15-year run in public relations with the New York Jets.

Rampant and semi-related @serious and hard core analysis and speculation@ on this move has already @exploded@ on Twitter via various New Orleans media figures:
