The former St Helens, Wigan and Castleford boss was sacked by the Tigers 11 matches into the Super League season.
But the 53-year-old has now landed a job with the feeder team for NRL club St George Illawarra Dragons, who he played for and coached before departing for the Super League in 1999.
Millward has also held coaching roles with North Queensland Cowboys and Canberra Raiders, but he enjoyed most success during his six-year spell in charge of St Helens.
After two years at Leigh, he led the Saints to two Grand Finals, two Challenge Cups and a World Club Challenge before taking over at Wigan.
Millward endured a miserable tenure with the Warriors, winning just three of 12 matches before he was sacked in April, 2006.
He returned to Australia to coach the Cowboys for three seasons, and he was appointed Castleford boss in 2012.
Millward's assistant at the Cutters will be former Hull and Wigan forward Scott Logan, who was coached by Millward at Wigan and Canberra.
Cutters chairman Sean O'Connor said: "Both the Dragons and Cutters have recruited well for next season and I am sure that Ian and Scott will bring the best out of the players."
