Miller time: Indiana hires Dayton's Archie Miller as head coach

Posted March 30, 2017

"IU is one of the greatest basketball programs and academic institutions in the country and I can not wait to get started".

Miller, through his comments, made it clear just how important his new "family" of players is going to be. Instead of the subject of articles titled "What's wrong with IU Basketball?". He spoke confidently and directly about each of the three levels. But Miller knows both his personal and teams' ceiling is higher now - and that's what was worth waiting for.

Media filled the court while fans lined the seats during Miller's introductory press conference.

Glass declined to explain the search process other than to say he only offered the job to one person. "I don't think Dane Fife was given more than an obligatory interview either".

The absolute best thing about Miller is his age.

"The expectations are set high". From Indiana's perspective, the hire makes total sense.

Noah has not played since February 4 and likely was to miss the Knicks' final 10 games this season because of a left knee injury.

Current players watched intently as they listened.

Speculation had been that Miller might be a longshot for IN because the job he treasured was the Ohio State position.

Glass' press conference to announce Crean's departure sounded like a fan letter to convince Alford to come back home. "I think he'll do great", Mooney said.

We know that his brother Sean is the coach a Arizona, and his dad was a coach too.

"There's a clean slate". If we don't, I'm going to be heartbroken every single year. "I wouldn't hire that guy to coach my fifth-grade girls team".

A standout point guard in college, Miller was a four-year letterwinner at North Carolina State (1998-2002) under Herb Sendek where he earned his bachelor's degree in 2002. Love it here. Have a great class coming in, and a brand-new practice facility. They haven't had to prove they're still that loyal because Miller was so successful. It looks like he was patient and got the one he wanted.

Athletic director Fred Glass wasn't surprised by what he heard — or the warm reaction from fans.

"He was real, and he was succinct in his presentation, " Glass said. IU opts to not go to the Bob Knight basketball family. He believes that uniting the fan base at IN starts with being productive on and off the court.

"I am honored to be the head coach at Indiana University", Miller said Saturday in a statement.

Indiana's new 38-year-old coach is widely regarded as the bright young mind of college basketball. Now, after going 139-63 in six seasons and leading the Flyers to four straight NCAA Tournament bids, Miller has a plan for Indiana.

According to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, Miller's deal with IN is expected to be for seven years worth IN the range of $4 million annually, which would make him the sixth-highest paid head coach IN college basketball. Crean took over a program that was not in good shape and did some good work, but he didn't do enough to keep his job after almost a decade.

Miller's brother, Sean, is the head basketball coach at Arizona. Miller took a school that made the Big Dance only seven times since 1970 and turned it into a perennial tournament team. It was much more than that. Miller doesn't bring the added attention of a huge name like Billy Donovan, but he has the fiery energy of young coach, something the Hoosiers and their fans can really enjoy. "And that is true".
