Indiana Basketball: Dayton’s Archie Miller To Become New HC

One of the hottest name on the list of available coaches has been snatched up by the Indiana basketball program.

Indiana and coach Archie Miller have come to an agreement that will bring Miller to Indiana and keep him there for the foreseeable future.

Miller has built the Dayton Flyers program into a mainstay in the NCAA tournament, making appearances in the last four consecutive tournaments, including a Final Four appearance in 2014.

This is a splash hiring for the Hooisers, who needed to make quick changes to a program that went 18-16 this season and failed to make the tournament.

In a town that has become accustomed to regularly being among the top schools in the nation, former coach Tom Crean failed to deliver the goods after nearly a decade in control of the basketball program. The Hoosiers missed the postseason for the second year in a row under Crean, and made only four appearances over his nine-year tenure.

Miller was a rising star, only 38, and the coach of back-to-back conference champions. The deal reportedly runs seven years and is still being finalized.
